Summer Science Fun

     I have seen the fountains that can be created using Diet Coke and Mentos candy on YouTube, but I have never done it myself. Today we finally used our Geyser Tube. Sarah, Ben, Rebekah and two of their friends all had a blast with this kit. They did the fun and I took the pictures. It was interesting to me to hear the kids talking and speculating on what would make the highest fountain. They had five bottles of Diet Coke and tried the fountains five different ways. They decided the highest fountain was simply adding 7 Mentos to the Diet Coke.  What a fun activity on a hot summer day. Making a mess with your friends, nothing could be better!
