PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

The purpose of this activity is to allow students to think critically to answer an EXTREMELY fun question. In this case, does Diet Coke really provide the best mentos/soda eruption? The students will need to use the scientific method to determine a way to answer that question. They will also need to design a test to empirically show that Diet Coke is the most explosive soda.

This is a great activity to use as a starting point to introduce concepts in chemistry, the scientific method, research skills, and general science. I've used this experiment several times and the students can never get enough of it.
