"Mentos and Soda" Trailer

Students experiment with different kinds of nozzles to see which one will produce the highest "fountain" from their soda bottle. This relates to liquids, gases, states of matter, compression of air, and carbon dioxide. This video also includes one of Mr. Mac’s crazy stories, “Jack and Jill and the Black Hole,” to help students remember the lesson. Difficulty: Easy
