Your students will be talking about this lab for years to come! Not really "barf", but the mixture of cereal, yeast, and water sure looks like it when the sandwich bag bursts open!This inquiry lab involves very little preparation. Because the fermentation process takes 1/2 to 1 hour, it is best to set up the lab, let it run for most of the class, then watch the bags POP as the carbon dioxide builds!
Love kitchen science experiments with materials you already have in the pantry. These science activities all use salt plus one or two other ingredients. Simple yet fun. Kids not only learn about salt attributes, but also scientific thinking, process, and methodology. Cool STEM project ideas to do at home or school or homeschool.
Science Experiment: Popcorn science experiment that teaches students the Scientific Method in a simple and easy to follow format. Everything you need is included except the popcorn and some materials always on hand in a school or kitchen. There is nothing complicated in this experiment, even for the teacher that is new to science experiments!Students will work together to try to find out if storing popcorn in different temperatures, such as the freezer, will help more kernels to pop.
