The greenhouse effect is the process in which the gases in the atmosphere of the earth trap the heat from the sunlight and release more heat and radiation on to the earth.
The important greenhouse gases are:
- Nitrous oxide
- Water vapor
- Carbon dioxide
Thus increasing the temperatures on the earth. In simple terms, it is the process that warms up the earth’s surface.
If the greenhouse effect is not reduced we will see a climate crisis at its peaks which are already a major problem faced by us.
In general, the greenhouse is a glass house wherein the heat is trapped to grow plants even in coldest climate conditions.
The problem arises when the harmful gases become out of proportion and releases onto the earth as harmful radiation.

In this video, we make a simple and easy greenhouse effect model displaying the process through the use of very simple products that are available at your home. In case there is a lot of scissors usage, you may take the help of your parents too.
Prepare for Science Fair Questions & Answers – Greenhouse effect
1) Mention any one solution to reduce the greenhouse effect?
A. One best way to reduce the greenhouse effect is to reduce the emission of greenhouse gases. This can be done by buying products with less plastic package or no plastic to reduce waste, using less of the air conditioning at home, using carpooling instead of driving one car per individual that emits harmful pollutants and plant as many trees as possible.
2) What are the greenhouse gases?
A. The three major greenhouse gases are carbon dioxide, water vapor, and methane.
3) What are the side effects of greenhouse gases?
A. The major side effect of greenhouse gases is global warming that creates extreme climate changes on the earth.
4) Which element on earth is the largest contributor to the greenhouse effect?
A. Water vapor is the major element that contributes to the greenhouse effect.
Although the greenhouse effect is the natural process that helps in balancing the temperature and growth on earth, humans have increased the greenhouse effect by the use of products that release the gases that cause the effect.
Overall the greenhouse gases are meant for good to our planet. Without these green gases, life does not exist.
Due to the increase in human activities on the planet, these gases are being added to much to the atmosphere.
Thus, everyone should be mindful of nature’s way of doing things rather than disturbing it.
