The Science Behind The Fun!

  • The coloured solution is vinegar, an acid, and the powder is baking soda, a base. 
  • When the acid (vinegar) and the base (baking soda) are mixed together, a chemical reaction happens! 
  • This reaction results in a new substance being made, a gas called carbon dioxide, which gives off the foaming and fizzing bubbles that you see. 
  • The volcano has a tiny opening, leaving very little room for the gas to spread out. This causes an “eruption” as the gas disperses quickly through the volcano crater!
  • A simple scientific experiment for young children that involves all 3 states of matter : solid (baking soda), liquid (vinegar), and gas (carbon dioxide).
