Kai's Science Fair Project

Preparing for the science fair has been a bit stressful, but now it's done. Hooray!!

Question: 
Which Wal-Mart brand soda is the fizziest?

Hypothesis
The diet cola will be the fizziest.

Procedure
  1. Drop 2 Mentos into each bottle of soda (diet Cola, diet Dr. Thunder, Cola, Diet Twist Up, Twist Up, Dr. Thunder, Root Beer, Ginger Ale, Mountain Lightning).
  2. Record and measure height of explosion.
Experiment:

Diet Cola was our first explosion.  It was set off before we could record the results. Fortunately, it splashed the board, which marked the height of 33 inches. 

  
Results


Diet Twist up has the most fizz, giving the highest explosion (39 inches), with six inches more than the next fizziest sodas. 

The soda with the least amount of fizz:
 Mountain Lightning (1 inch)

What a wimpy little fountain!
I love how the measuring stick/board turned out!! 
 Thanks, Honey!

Mad as a Hatter

Coby's class performed a portion of Alice in Wonderland.  
Coby was the Mad Hatter of his group. 
This video is was done prior to the live performance. 


During the performance for parents, he got into character. He crossed his eyes or moved them around crazy. He spoke in a helium induced sounding voice or a deep dopey one. It made him the best Mad Hatter of the bunch. I wish I had gotten video of it.
