Ashlee from TCT and her mum Ann showed us an experiment on nucleation (dropping mentos into coke). First we watched a YouTube clip to try and understand the science behind the experiment. Adam and Jamie from Mythbusters explained that only the white mentos will work because the coloured ones have a coating. Next we went outside for the fun part. (We discovered that the fizzy drink should not be cold and Ann ran back to the supermarket to get warm fizzy drinks). After multiple attempts with Creaming Soda, Diet Coke, Lemonade and Coke Zero we can happily report that it works best with warm Coke Zero. We loved watching the reaction and cheered anytime it fizzed but the best part was when it quickly shot up and hit Miss Hughes! Thank you to Ann Davies for taking time from her day to show Transition the experiment and thank you to Transition who were curious but sensible and really engaged with Science Day!
