SAN ANTONIO – Hello parents, teachers and students!
Are you looking for something fun to do at home that has a little bit of science behind it?
So why exactly do you think the balloon expands? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below. Be sure to check out GMSA@9 on Wednesday when Meteorologist Kaiti Blake does the experiment and explains the science behind it or click on the video player above.
Balloon Experiment with candy and soda
Here’s what you’ll need:
- Pop Rocks
- paper towels
- Attach a balloon to the mouth of a funnel and pour the candy into the balloon.
- Next attach the balloon to a soda bottle. 12 ounce bottles were used for the experiment. Be careful to not let any of the candy spill into the soda while you are attaching it.
- Once the balloon is securely on the soda bottle shake the contents of the balloon into the soda.
