The Infant Room investigated how to blow up a balloon without using their breath!
The science, behind this balloon baking soda experiment, is the chemical reaction between the base – baking soda – and the acid – vinegar. When the two ingredients mix together the balloon baking soda experiment gets its lift! The gas produced from the two ingredients is carbon dioxide or CO2.
There was great excitement in the classroom when carrying out this experiment and Ms. Costelloe had many volunteers willing to help. We documented our science experiment in our copies.
