Exploding Effervescence

In the fifth grade all the classes did an exploding effervescence science project. Exploding effervescence stands for coke plus mentos. If you mix the coke and mentos they will have little gas bubbles that float up and the gas bubbles make an explosion which cause the coke to spray out. We had different things that we did. There was cars, pendulums, swaying ones, and even high spraying ones. All the students got to pick which one they wanted to do. I chose the high spraying one. I think we did really good at it even though they did not all go off.
