ROOM 8 used baking soda and vinegar to create an awesome chemical reaction! 

What we needed:
Baking Soda
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!

What happened?
 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!

Well done Room 8 on your construction of your volcano. I think I now know how to make a volcano erupt. Maybe next time you can add some food colouring to make the magma/ lava look more real.
