Nanogirl: Star Science

Nanogirl wants to find 100 friends to do science experiments with her to prove that no matter who you are or what your education level, you can always have fun with science.

Day 17:

Diet coke and mentos experiment 1

So I'll admit that I've seen videos online of the diet coke and mentos eruption, but when I tried it at home I was disappointed in how it didn't seem to react very well. Thinking it was just me, a  young group tried it and used 5 mentos and a 2 litre bottle of diet coke.

The reaction was very underwhelming and we think there is something different about the ingredients found in diet coke and mentos in New Zealand compared to the same products in America where the videos were made. 

So this is only experiment 1, but I think we can solve the problem and create a much bigger reaction.

If you think you have an idea that could help this reaction let me know and we will try again.
