Our latest Tinker Crate ~ Soda Science

We had a great time with our latest crate. It was soda science. We already had done a few of the experiments but that doesn't matter. The kids are always game to do an experiment again. We had never used citric acid before. What I love about these crates is they always stretch my kids a little bit further.
Today they learned about nucleation while watching raisins dancing in soda. They watched the creation of molecules while launching a citric acid/baking soda rocket. They learned about carbon dioxide in our foods (soda, pop candy) and attempted to make their own pop candy. We also purchased to store bought pop candy and compared it to our own. What a fun two hours spent with science!

  1. It looks like so much fun. We discontinued our Doodle Crate because she just didn't have time and the things kept coming! She also didn't like a few of the projects. But maybe this would be more her style.

  2. I wish we had this in the UK. It looks so complete and well organised. Love the video!
