Screaming Science

Remember the good ole baking soda and vinegar experiments?
Well, that's just what we did today. Two experiments to be exact.
1. The Classic Volcano Eruption
and my favorite...
2.Baking Soda Balloon

You fill a balloon with baking soda, attached it to the top of a vinegar filled bottle, pour the baking soda into the bottle and voila...the balloon inflates on its own.

The kids literally screamed and shrieked when the balloon started to get bigger and were holding onto the bottles so tightly as if it were going to rocket off their desks.

Who said Science has to be boring?
