Making a diet soda and mentos geyser is one of those fun and surprising moments of childhood. You don’t expect it to be as explosive as it turns out to be and that’s the fun of it! Kids will love this simple, fun, and messy experiment, courtesy of Inside Out Motherhood 🙂

And here’s the way to bring the fun into Science! According to Wikipedia, “The potassium benzoate, aspartame, and carbon dioxide gas contained in Diet Coke, in combination with the gelatin and gum arabic ingredients of the Mentos contribute to the formation of the foam.” Here’s some more info to teach your kids the Whys and Hows of the experiment.
Have fun!
