Pop Rocks and Soda – Science Fair Project

I did a science project for school. It was about pop rocks and soda. I put pop rocks in a balloon and then, dump them in the soda. Then you watch it.

I asked would pop rocks and drinking soda explode your stomach.  The answer is won’t explode your stomach, but it will make you burp a lot.

Science Project: Will eating Pop Rocks and drinking soda make your stomach explode?

I used Mountain Dew, Fanta, Coke, Pepsi, Sprite and Dr. Pepper.

Once we dumped the Pop Rocks into the soda, it started making lots of fizzling noises.  I saw that darker colors would fizzle more.  And I thought which the one with most sugar would blow off.

Pop Rocks and soda experiment.

But none of them blew off. Pepsi had the most gas. And my cat wanted to do science.  Trooper wouldn’t leave the experiment alone, and he is showing up in the back of lots of pictures in my science project.  I wonder if anyone at school will notice.

Science and Pop Rocks!
I did the project because it sounded awesome and I like pop rocks. They tickle in your mouth and  hurt a little in your mouth.
And here’s a video of me doing the project….and you’ll see my cat Trooper showing up.
