  • Fizz, Pop, Wow!

    You know something great is going to happen when Steve Spangler has to cover his kitchen science lab in plastic! In this show, we will experiment with chemical reactions to create carbon dioxide gas to make things fizz, pop and explode and learn the secret to create the famous explosive Elephant’s Toothpaste reaction. You will not believe what is hiding in a can of soda or your breakfast cereal, and how your knowledge of density and a little creativity will make a bowling ball float in water, but your critical thinking skills will lead you to an incredible discovery. Get ready to explore some amazing science you can do yourself… and some things you will want to try at a friend’s home!
