Mentos and Coke Experiment in Nursery

Mentos and Coke Experiment in Nursery

The Nursery children like nothing better than an exciting science experiment! Science is such a broad and exciting subject especially for children who are naturally curious and have questioning minds. We recognise the importance of introducing a wide range of experiences to our early years children so that they can begin to develop their scientific knowledge.

Miss O’Connor spent a huge forty nine pence on bottles of coke and packs of mentos. She donned her rain coat and the countdown began!

10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1………BOOM!

We compared full fat coke to diet coke. Diet coke gave us the best effect and made us all laugh the most! The children then returned to class to draw their own recordings of the experiment. The photographs and drawings were then added to our exploration display board! Science is so much fun! Especially when you are only three years old!
