In this quick activity, learners observe how the added sugar in a can of soda affects its density and thus, its ability to float in water.
Surface Area and Soda GeysersAdd to list Details
This is an activity (located on page 4 of the PDF under Surface Area Activity) about surface area and reactivity.
This hands-on activity lets participant explore chemical reactions as they create a soda explosion with lots of bubbles. The bubbles in soda are made of carbon dioxide gas.
Using Food Labels
In this nutrition activity, learners explore food labels and consider the nutritional value of foods. Learners also explore units of measurement commonly used on food labels.
Physics in the Kitchen: Sink or Swim Soda
In the kitchen, learners can perform their own density investigation.
Having a Gas with ColaAdd to list Details
In this activity, learners measure the amount of carbon dioxide in a carbonated drink.
Root Beer Float
In this quick activity/demonstration about density, learners examine what happens when two cans of root beer--one diet and one regular--are placed in a large container of water.
A Dissolving ChallengeAdd to list Details
In this activity, learners add objects and substances to carbonated water to discover that added objects increase the rate at which dissolved gas comes out of solution.
Temperature vs. Height: Soda Geyser Series #6Add to list Details
In this activity, learners conduct a controlled experiment to examine how temperature will affect the height of a soda geyser.
Sink or Swim?
Learners observe a tank of water containing cans of diet and regular sodas. The diet sodas float and the regular sodas sink. All the cans contain the same amount of liquid and the same amount of air.
Light SodaAdd to list Details
In this activity, learners sublimate dry ice and then taste the carbon dioxide gas.
Defining DissolvingAdd to list Details
In this introductory activity, learners discover that sugar and food coloring dissolve in water but neither dissolves in oil.
Number of Mentos vs. Height: Soda Geyser Series #5Add to list Details
In this activity, learners conduct a controlled experiment to examine how many Mentos are needed to make the tallest possible soda geyser.
Soda Brand vs. Height Experiment: Soda Geyser Series #4Add to list Details
In this activity, learners conduct a controlled experiment to examine which brand of soda makes the best (highest) soda geyser.
Sweet MeasurementsAdd to list Details
In this activity on page 3 of the PDF, learners investigate how much sugar is in a soda. Learners use sugar cubes to measure and calculate the amount of sugar in a bottle of soda.
Soda Pop CaveAdd to list Details
In this geology activity (page 6 of the PDF), learners explore how carbonic acid can slowly dissolve limestone and form caves.
Soda GeyserAdd to list Details
In this quick activity (page 1 of PDF under SciGirls Activity: Lift Off), learners will use the ever-popular soda geyser experiment to test the reactivity of the various sugar candies or mints.
Make Your Own Soda PopAdd to list Details
In this chemistry activity (page 8 of the PDF), learners will identify the instances of physical change, chemical change, and solutions while making homemade soda pop.
In this activity (5th activity on the page), learners explore how what you see influences taste. In experiment 1, learners taste five sodas, one of which is clear soda with orange food coloring.
