What happens when you combine Mentos, Diet Coke and Room 1?
Room 1 have taken a practical approach to learning about different reactions.
On Thursday, Room 1 conducted a science experiment with Mrs McDougall, using diet Coca-cola and Mentos lollies. Room 1 have been learning about using their 5 senses in science and then using these to help with their observations. If you are feeling brave yourself try the step by step instructions here!
Here are some observations they wrote after the experiment:
