Cloud Making Science Kit
This cloud in a bottle experiment kit may not control the weather, but it might just be the next best thing. This mind-blowing experiment will show how pressure and water vapor in the air compress and expand in a small-scale version of what happens in the atmosphere. You’ll make your own clouds and learn all about the science behind their formation with this great new hands-on kit.
Recommended for children ages 8 and up.
- Clear plastic bottle
- Foot pump
- Rubber stopper
- Safety glasses

How Does It Work?
Cloud in a Bottle works by creating factors inside the bottle that are necessary for the formation of clouds. Pumping air into the bottle introduces high pressure, and releasing the air allows the cloud to form. This how to make a cloud in a bottle kit is a simple, hands-on version of what happens in the atmosphere every day.
What Does It Teach?
Cloud in a bottle teaches the basic principles behind cloud formation and how it relates to high and low pressure.
Small Scale Weather Demonstration
The changes in the weather that we see every day are the result of many complex factors that we are often unable to observe. Children ages eight and up can learn about some of these weather changes with the Cloud In A Bottle Science Kit from Steve Spangler Science. This fascinating kit allows young scientists to create a real cloud of their own inside a simple clear plastic bottle. By using a foot pump, they create pressure within the bottle. When the bottle is opened and the air is released, the pressure within the bottle drops, and water vapor within the bottle then condenses into a real, small-scale cloud. When children see this happen, they begin to get a sense of how it works in the real world every day when a cloud passes by and obscures the sun.
