Mentos sweet experiment

Year 4 discussed what they thought would happen when Mentos sweets were dropped into a bottle of Cola.

Lots of children thought the Mentos would dissolve. The class walked onto the field to watch the experiment. Can you predict what happened?

As soon as the Mentos touched the Cola there was a huge explosion of Cola! The brown bubbles flew high into the air. It was very exciting to watch.

The children used some good language to describe what they saw:
Explosion
Eruption
Fizzing
Volcano
Dissolve
Collide
Melt

Well done Robins.
