Young Explorers: Rain Forests and Precipitation

Jaguars, orangutans, and anacondas all live in the rain forest, but why do they find this harsh environment so habitable.  Join us for Young Explorers: Rainforests and Precipitation at the Columbia Memorial Space Center as we discover why rain forests are always so green and warm.  In this class, we will be making rain clouds and looking at the science behind ecosystems near the equator.
