I also forgot my camera. I had my phone but all of the experiment instructions were in my phone and because I had to go back and forth and also run the meeting I did not get as many pictures as I wanted to. I had 8 children plus two younger siblings attend this meeting.
Experiment #1 Dancing Gummy Worms. First we added cut up gummy worms to a solution of baking soda and water and let them soak for 15 minutes. Then we added to the worms to a cup of vinegar and the worms were supposed to dance. This did not work! Our worms sunk to the bottom and stayed there.
Experiment #2 was to make a skittle rainbow in a bowl. We placed 3 of each color around the outside edge and added 1/2 in of water to the bottom of the bowl. This turned out really pretty!
Experiment #3 was also with skittles. We dissolved different amounts of each color skittle in a glass and then were supposed to layer them in a glass from most dense to least dense. This did not work! Instead of pretty colors it looked like a muddy mess.
Experiment #4 was to blow up balloons using coke and two different types of candy. I wish I had taken more pictures because it blew the balloons up really well. We were supposed to use nerds and pop rocks but I couldn't find those, so we used nerds in one and lemon heads in the other. Only 10 nerds blew the balloon up so big I thought it would break.
Experiment #5 was extracting DNA from a strawberry. You can find the full instructions here. This is a really cool experiment.
