Description: 

There is always some water vapor in the air. For the most part we can’t see it directly, but we can measure its presence with a relative humidity sensor. In this activity, you will use a relative humidity sensor and a soda bottle to measure humidity near surfaces, such as over a leaf or above an ice cube.
