ROOM 8 used baking soda and vinegar to create an awesome chemical reaction!
A container to hold everything and avoid a big mess!
Paper towels or a cloth (just in case)
Place some of the baking soda into your container.
Pour in some of the vinegar. Watch as the reaction takes place!
The baking soda was a base while the vinegar was an acid. When they reacted together they formed carbonic acid which is very unstable, it instantly broke apart into water and carbon dioxide, which created all the fizzing as it escaped the solution. For extra effect we made a realistic looking volcano. It took some craft skills but it made our vinegar and baking soda eruptions look even more impressive!
