fizzy foamy fun.
Science is fun. (No, really!) Lately A has been into being a scientist and conducting experiments, so we have been exploring different kinds of projects.
We had a chance to play with our fizzy foamy science kit over the last few days. It is all stuff we could do at home with a few simple materials, but having the list of experiments was nice for a starting place. The boys loved to measure, pour, scoop, observe, compare, chart, and chat.
They learned about single celled organisms, carbon dioxide, chemical reactions, liquid properties, yeast, and how similar things react in different environments. They were interested to watch how rapidly yeast grows, foams, and emits carbon dioxide.
And they got to blow bubbles in soap. Bonus!
