Diet Soda & Mentos Experiment

2nd Sep 2014


Such an easy and exciting science experiment to do with the kids – just make sure your outside!

The reason the soda explodes out of the bottle is called nucleation. Basically the surface of the sweet is coved in thousands of tiny pits (like a tiny moon) and the CO2 can turn to gas in these pits. The sweet sinks to the bottom of the drink and courses all the bubbles to shoot up.




Go on give it a go one evening this week after school.
