We exploded diet coke using mentos. We also tried other things: marshmallows, cheerios, M&M's, twizzlers, and goldfish. Twizzlers made the diet coke bubble a lot and mentos made it explode. Our conclusion was, "Never drink diet coke and eat mentos or twizzlers!" (Sorry the video is sideways...lesson learned!)
|The Mad Scientist for the day!|
|We raced cars with balloons to see which direction they would go and how adding or taking away air changed how the moved!|
We ended the day with the kids getting to be Mad Scientists themselves. We made Oobleck..both a solid and a liquid and tried to figure out how that happened!
