Soda Powered Science

About This Kit

The viral Diet Coke and Mentos® experiment that Steve Spangler invented has matured over the years into this amazing kit.  As the name states, you’ll do a dozen different experiments that are powered by soda.  Figure out how high you can make a geyser soar into the air, make your own fizzing fuel, and more.  Back by popular demand, this kit includes the soda powered Geyser Car that can travel over 100 feet on a single bottle of soda.
