Soda and Mentos

Our first Science experiments with mentos and coke.
Rebecca said, "On Tuesday we had library we also did a science experiment with fizzy drink’s and mentos. During our science experiment we had to put six mentos into a fizzy drink then wait for it to explode then when it is done we had to measure how much fizzy is left and record it onto a paper."
Vatrina said, "We used Mentos and soda, our big inquiry question was ‘Does the color of the Soda effect the explosion?’. No. It doesnt, its just coloring, but what I think is that the longer you open the lid the smaller your explosion will be. We had alot of fun that afternoon, we also got to share our drinks and mentos within our group. Science is very fun, I’d love to do alot more experiments."


  1. What an awesome experiment! Do you think the year 7 and 8 students in my class would like to do this one too? I hadn't thought of it, but now I'm wondering.

  2. Hi,
    yes Miss Holland, we would love to! It would definitley be cool. I hope we get to try it soon. Your class should try Obelix, we did and it was awesome!!

  3. Let's add it to the list then, Fatima! It could be neat to keep tabs on each others experiments - I'm sure we could learn a lot from each other.
