Science@IMSA – Thursday: Greenhouse Gas Lab

This Thursday, our students spent the day in the greenhouse: Earth! We learned how sunlight comes through the atmosphere and gets absorbed by the land and gasses in the atmosphere, trapping heat. Students collected and graphed data to analyze.

Ask your student:

What type of radiation holds the most heat? (Infrared)

What does the greenhouse effect mean for Earth? (Global warming)
