YOUNG EINSTEIN CLUB – MAKING POPCORN DANCE!

Posted on

The Young Einstein Club got off to a great start when approximately 40 Junior pupils gathered in BC2 to make popcorn dance.  NO music was required, just the mixing of sodium hydrogen carbonate (baking soda) and ethanoic acid (vinegar) to produce bubbles of carbon dioxide.  The bubbles attached themselves to the popcorn kernels and carried them to the surface and when the bubbles burst at the surface the kernels sank to the bottom.

We look forward to seeing everybody again on Wednesday 11th October in BP5 for our next experiment when we will be making hovercrafts.
