In Reception we have been looking at the story ‘Ada Twist the Scientist’ by Andrea Beaty. One of the experiments in the book makes a bottle of pop explode! We decided to have a go and see how big our explosion could be! All we used was a bottle of diet cola and some mints and it went pop!
In the story Ada Twist asks lots of ‘why’, ‘what’ and ‘how’ questions which we did too!
Why does the bottle explode?
How does it happen?
What is happening inside the bottle?
We decided to name this experiment the Explosion Potion!
