Fizzy Foamy Science
Clash of the Powders
I took a plastic cup and filled it up halfway with water. Then I put a teaspoon of citric acid. Then I mixed it around till it dissolved. Then I put a teaspoon of baking soda and it started foaming a whole bunch for about 30 seconds.
Fizz goes the Acid
I took milk, tabasco sauce, and apple cider. Then I put baking soda in three jars. Then I put milk in the first jar, it didn't fizz or foam at all. Then I put Tabasco inside the second jar and it foamed and fizzed a whole bunch, it was red foam. Then I put apple cider in the third jar and it foamed for about 5 seconds and it stopped.
This year I vowed science would get done and we would have fun. Our box from Home Science Tools arrived today! The first kit they chose was
We did the first two experiments. They were really fun. We did use a few things around the house, but our choices were pretty open ended. We just need household liquids from the kitchen. Since we were already in the kitchen it was not difficult. We did not have vinegar. But, we did have Tabasco which is vinegar based and it worked great.
