Giant Hailstones and Tornado
Video that starts with tornado formation then goes to the hailstones which takes place in South Plains, Texas. The people who filmed this are stormchasers. This is an awesome video, which shows the damage that hail can do. Run time 05:06.
How to Make a Cloud
Crazy Chris shows us how to make clouds and teaches us about Cloud Formation in this brief clip from So Cool Science. For this experiment you will need a pop bottle, a lighter, a piece of paper, and an adult. Audio quality is low but it is still easy to understand the experiment. However, audio quality improves when Chris gives an explanation for the experiment. Run time 03:01.
Supercell - some pictures and a time lapse
Pictures and timelapsed home video. There are some awesome pictures of supercell clouds and the a video of a supercell cloud formation. A supercell is a thunderstorm that is characterized by the presence of a deep continuously-rotating updraft. These are awesome pictures. Images are set to music. Run time 02:31.

How Does a Plant Grow? - Time Lapse
The growth and development of a plant is one of the most spectacular events in nature. Yet, because it happens so slowly, over the course of days or weeks, it is difficult to observe in real time. This video segment depicts plant growth in time-lapse format, allowing the viewer to observe in just a few seconds some of the most important life stages of a plant, from germination to the formation of a flower, and several phases in between. Footage from NOVA: "The Shape of Things." Video is set to m
Secrets in the Salt
In this video segment adapted from NOVA scienceNOW, take a trip
to an underground salt deposit that formed 250 million years ago to
search for evidence of ancient life. Learn about the formation of the
salt deposit and observe as scientists drill into the salt walls to
retrieve samples. See liquids trapped within the salt that are millions
of years old, and hear from scientists who were stunned to find that
there were fibers of ancient cellulose inside.
Cave Formations: Kane Cave
At first glance, Wyoming's Kane Cave exhibits few characteristics of the world's most picturesque caves — it lacks mineral deposits, including stalactites and stalagmites, which decorate most cave ceilings and floors. Although the cave is not small, it pales in size against more massive ones, like those of New Mexico's Carlsbad Caverns. However, it is not its size that draws scientists to Kane Cave, but another compelling aspect of the cave. In this video segment adapted from NOVA, watch as sc

Learn about lightning, how it forms, and how to stay safe in this brief, computer-animated video. The following concepts will be briefly covered: the water cycle, evaporation and cloud formation, water condensation and rain, opposite charges attract, lightning formation, and lightning safety. The video ends with a 10-question, fill-in-the-blank quiz.
Island Universes: The Nature and Origin of Galaxies
Prof. Webb describes the basic characteristics of galaxies, outline the methods we use to study them, and highlights some of the main results and open questions in the field of galaxy formation and evolution.
Why Is Carbon Important to Living Systems?
Carbon is important to living systems in that it is found in every
form of life, and it can form long chains of molecules that perform a
variety of functions. Discover carbon's importance in the formation of
DNA and RNA with help from a science teacher and field biologist in this video.
From Seed to Flower

How Do Tornadoes Form?
On average, about 800 tornadoes occur in the United States each year. They can appear and disappear in moments, and key details about their formation are unknown. These factors make the research to understand and predict tornado occurrence extremely difficult. This video segment adapted from NOVA describes the challenges of studying tornadoes and shows how computer simulations are helping researchers observe what they can't possibly see in a real storm. Closed captioning included. Run time 06:
