Second-graders are learning that scientific discovery is an essential part of their education and with this week’s lesson, their curiosity was fully engaged.

Using the steps of the scientific method, the students conducted an experiment with Coca Cola and Mentos candies. They first learned what soda consists of and that the fizz that bubbles up is called carbon dioxide. They then dropped the Mentos into the bottle of soda and observed the fun reaction of a whooshing geyser spray!
