Summer Science Experiments

G-man wanted to do a bunch.  We got around to doing two. He's a big fan of chemistry type experiments. They're just so much buildup for five seconds of actual reaction time. I need something that takes a little more time and effort.

Experiment 1: Diet Coke and Mentos
 The small bottles definitely did not work as well as the big ones

Experiment #2: Elephant Toothpaste

It took a few tries to find the right bottle for this experiment. You needed something skinny to make the foam come out looking like toothpaste.  This was one we could do a few times over and them we played with the foam.  Definitely more fun than diet coke and mentos. But also a bit more dangerous.
