Activity overview:

Buy it Here: http://www.incrediblescience.com/soda-car-geyser-racer.html

Start your engines with your own Mentos® powered soda car! Comes with over 15 activities for you to have fun with. Learn about Newton's Laws of Motion as you watch your Mentos® Soda Car zoom across the ground with a trail of soda shooting out behind it. Build and customize a soda geyser car and watch as the geyser car travels more than 200 feet! As soon as you release the Mentos® into the soda, the car ZOOMS away. Strap the soda bottle onto the chassis, add decals to the nosecone and you're ready to "Start Your Engine."

Learn why this works so well and experiment with other types of car power. Experiment with and design your own "best fuels" with the included Depth Charger. Convert to an air-pump system and race your Mentos® Soda Car over and over. Makes a great science fair, class demonstration, or at-home experiment.

Incredible Science Fun Learning Ideas:

Great hands-on experiment that can be used for lessons on physics, motion and physical reactions.
Delve into Newton's Laws and see it in action as the Mentos® Soda Car zooms away.
Discuss chemical reactions and discuss why the Mentos and soda react the way they do when mixed together.
Learn about carbon dioxide and oxygen reactions and the various factors that affect the growth rate of carbon dioxide bubbles.
Experiment and change the variables while trying to determine the results. Vary the types of soda, temperature of the soda, number of Mentos, regular old diet soda.
