Science Week 2024 - Gases

As part of science week, classes did a number of experiments - using their skills of prediction to talk about what they thought might happen, then carrying it out to see if they were right. S5 did an experiment using a bottle of coke, Mentos mints and a balloon.

When they dropped the mint into the coke, it started to fizz and the balloon began to inflate.

They learned that the ‘GAS’ that was being released from the reaction between the coke and mints was the reason the balloon was filling up and getting bigger.

Our budding scientists had a great time!
