Our First VLOG for Homeschool Science Class today

Pin It Now! Well me start by saying this was not the most educational, but it was the most fun so far, and it is something Taylor has been asking to do since we started homeschooling so I am a great mom today to say the least LOL.

We purchased Steve Spangler's Geyser Tube from our Local Hobby Shop. It was $4.99 plus the cost of 2 2-liters of Diet soda.

you can search for great science fun at http://www.geysertube.com/

We are definitely going to be looking for some more fun hands on science activities to do over the summer.

We decided to VLOG this experience and hope to start doing some more vlogging soon.

The following is info off the package

How does it work?

Each Mentos, chewy mint has thousands of tiny pits all over the surface. These tiny pits are called nucleation sites--- perfect places for carbon dioxide bubbles in the soda to form. As soon as the Mentos hits the soda, bubbles form all over the surfaceof the chewy mints and then quickly rise to the surface of the liquid. Couple this with the fact that the Mentos are heavy and sink to the bottom of the bottle and you have a double-whammy. When all this gas is released, it literally pushes all the liquid up and out of the bottle in an incredible soda blast. That's the simple explanation. Want to know the rest of the story?

Please watch our video below and enjoy the fun without the mess.....
