Investigate the chemistry behind an exciting “popping” toy. A chemical reaction within a sealed bag rapidly produces carbon dioxide gas, expanding until the bag breaks with a loud pop that will grab even your most inattentive student's interest! Students test and compare the unknown components of the toy against known chemicals to figure out the reaction that creates the “pop.” This fun investigative laboratory activity is also a great introduction to microscale chemistry. Two additional toys are included for a pre-lab teacher demonstration.
Complete for 30 students working in pairs. Spot plates are required and available separately.
