ISUEO hosts Fizz, Bubble, Goo ...

Iowa State University Extension and Outreach recently visited the St. Patrick School kindergarten class to offer Fizz, Bubble and Goo, a science-based program which requires students to get messy and sparks their natural curiosity for learning. A few of the activities included making homemade bubbles and bubble blowers and cola with ingredients right out of the cupboard. The kindergarten students learned what makes Alka Seltzer fizz and what gas blew up their balloon when they mixed baking soda and vinegar. The grand finale was making elephant toothpaste (pictured above) and watching the reaction between hydrogen peroxide, yeast and soap. Included in the finale was the Mentos and soda pop experiment, dropping 10 candies into the Coca-Cola (pictured below and a must-try at home!)
