Popcorn Experiment Video
Earlier in the summer, my teenage daughter did a one week long Kids' Camp for children ages 5-10. Each day had a different theme and was filled with fun crafts and activities. Day 4 was Science Day. They created geysers with Mentos and soda pop. They made Ziploc bags burst with baking soda and vinegar. They grew Borax crystals. They made ice cream. And they made popcorn kernels float and sink. The kids were so enthralled with this experiment that we did it several times and they were mesmerized by the rising and falling popcorn! It was such a successful part of the day that I thought I would make a little how to video for this simple experiment. I hope that you enjoy it as much as the kids did!
By way of caution...if you try this at home, be sure to add the baking soda very slowly or you will end up with a bubbling mess! Even when I added the baking soda slowly, the water still fizzed up and spilled over! If you want to try to record your own experiment in your SHOTBOX, be sure that the base is something that is waterproof. I used actual wood floor planks. A paper print out of wood floor planks would not be a good idea! Tile would work. The infinity panels would work. Vinyl would work. There are many options that would work so let your imagination run wild and happy experimenting!
