Dear Reader,

As I have mentioned before, as part of my “Light an Educational Fire” ( http://www.surfnetkids.com/movie/ ) promotion, Surfnetkids offers a small snippet of code to display daily education quotations on your website. See http://www.surfnetkids.com/daily.html for more.

This week a reader asked if I could provide daily education quotations via email. I thought this was a great idea, so here they are:

Snow (in just the right amounts, at just the right time) is loved by all. But what exactly is the fluffy cold stuff, and how is made? Today’s winter tour examines the subject of snow through the eyes of scientists, weathermen, and multimedia artists. Let it snow! Let it snow! Let it snow!

All About Snow



“Is it ever too cold to snow? How big can snowflakes get? Why is snow white?” Everything you ever wanted to know about snow (but didn’t know who to ask) is answered here by the National Snow and Ice Data Center, affiliated with the University of Colorado. This educational site also includes a Snow Glossary (from “ablation” to “vapor pressure”), a Snow Fact Sheet and a feature on the history of snow removal. The first known snow plow was pulled by horses through the “snow-clogged streets” of Milwaukee in 1862.

Make a Flake



Wow! Don’t miss this virtual snowflake designer. Start by perusing the gallery of saved snowflakes, and then try your hand at making your own. The trick is to click (not drag) your scissors from point to point. You’ll know your scissors are snipping when the indicator changes from red to green. When your masterpiece is complete, you can download it, print it, email it to a friend, or go back to the gallery and look for it there.

Snowflakes and Snow Crystals



“This site is all about snow crystals and snowflakes — what they are, where they come from, and just how these remarkably complex and beautiful structures are created, quite literally, out of thin air.” Best place to start on this Cal Tech site is the Snowflake Primer, where you’ll learn the answer to questions such as “Is it really true that no two snow crystals are alike?” and “Why do snow crystals form in such complex symmetrical shapes?”
