Join WOW Scientists Jen and Kylie in the WOW Lab to create EXPLOSIONS while experimenting with some simple, DIY chemical reactions!
Did you know that a CHEMICAL REACTION is a process where one substance changes into one or more different substances, or products?! In these experiments, we are combining a LIQUID *acid* with a SOLID *base* to create several different chemicals, one being carbon dioxide, which is a GAS!!!💨
Please let us know what experiments you’d like to see in future videos by leaving a comment below!
To create these explosions at home you will ALWAYS need:
-Parent or guardian permission AND supervision! 🛑✅
-Eye protection! 😎
Since we’ve included several experiments in this video you may not need all of the items below. Please refer to video for experiment instructions!
Additional items needed for EXPLOSIONS:
-Safe outdoor area
-Vinegar (distilled white vinegar works the best!)
-Tray or baking sheet to place under containers
-Measuring cups & spoons
-Kleenex, toilet paper or other tissue paper
-Plastic containers & cups (with and without lids)
-Ziploc or seal-able plastic bags
-Dawn dish soap (adding this to any of the experiments is safe, and will create more bubbles!)
-Plastic water or juice bottle with pop-top lid
-Film canister or other small, plastic container with a lid that pops off easily
