Last year, we started somewhat of a tradition of doing DIY science experiments on the weekends. Some we recorded and uploaded to our YouTube channel. Others happened so fast I couldn’t even pick up the camera. We get ideas from many sources. Most online. The bending light experiment was taken from one of our science workbooks.
Thankfully we have also been receiving and making use of our monthly subscription to Kiwi Co. The Tinker Crate science kits are hands-on and have a heavy focus on STEM (science, technology, engineering & mathematics).
To get back on top of things I wanted to find another quick DIY experiment. So this past weekend, I found this exploding apple experiment on Pinterest. It is very simple to do and clean up is quick.
*I did not measure when we did it the first time but it might be beneficial to do so.
- 1 apple
- 1/2 cup vinegar
- 2 tablespoonfuls of baking soda
