Explore the importance of snow as part of the water cycle and climate change.  Prepare a NASA STEM lesson for a snow field trip.  What do you need for a winter walk?  How cold is the snow? How do we measure snow density? How do you dig a snow pit and collect the data?  How much water is in that snow?  Learn about snowflakes. Use satellite data to determine the importance of the snow in the southwestern states.
