Learn About Snowflakes
Last updated December 09, 2006
For a novel lesson this winter in either the classroom or at home, learn all about snowflakes! We highly recommend snowcrystals.com for anyone young or old interested in learning about the phenomenon of snow crystal formation - or just someone who wants to enjoy the magical beauty of snow.
Created by Professor Kenneth G. Libbrecht of Caltech, Snowcrystals is a completely family-friendly site with dozens of crisp, beautiful photographs of real snowflakes taken with a snowflake photomicroscope.
Learn about natural snowflake formation as well as the efforts of Professor Libbrect to form "designer snowflakes" in a laboratory! In addition to the hard science stuff, there's plenty for younger kids to see, do, and enjoy at Snowcrystals.
