Carter came home a couple of weeks ago with the packet for his first science fair. We looked through dozens of websites for ideas, printed out top favorites and he eventually selected the Diet Coke Explosion.
Find out which candy makes diet coke explode. Carter selected several candies to try (with Luke's input, some based on which ones they like to eat). It was decided to try: Smarties, Sour Patch Kids, M&Ms, Reese's Pieces, Mentos and Skittles.
Carter set up his Scientific Method, hypothesizing that Smarties would explode the most. But Mentos creates as massive explosion, shooting up into the air.
