Smog In A Jar Ecology Science Experiment
In this fun and easy ecology science experiment, we’re going to create a jar of smog to explore and investigate.
- Match or lighter
- Twisted up piece of paper
- Aluminum foil
- Ice cubes
- Large narrow mouthed jar or carafe
- Have an adult light one end of the piece of paper and drop it in the jar.
- Cover the mouth of the jar with aluminum foil.
- Place ice cubes on the aluminum foil.
- Smog will build up in the jar.

How it Works:
The ice on the aluminum foil lid will cool the air in the jar and create condensation. The smoke from the burning piece of paper will mix with the condensation in the jar and create smog. This experiment is a great example of smog which is essentially air pollution that reduces visibility.
Make This A Science Project:
Try the experiment without the ice. Try sitting the jar in a dish filled with ice, but do not put an aluminum foil lid on the jar. Try the experiment without putting anything burning in the jar and observe the condensation.
