Things that go POP! Y2 2017

Today our children have taken the role of mini scientists experimenting with things that go POP!

Our first experiment was called ‘Dancing Raisins‘. We added raisins to lemonade and observed the reaction. The children appeared to be fascinated with watching the raisins ‘dance’.

For the second experiment the children predicted what would happen if we increased the amount of Mentos we added to coke for each of the four bottles.

Much to the children’s amusement (not the adults) the coke exploded everywhere including onto the teachers! The results proved the children’s predictions, the more Mentos added would cause a larger explosion!

The children and adults all had a fantastic day discovering the enjoyment of working scientifically.
