Fizzy Balloons

27 January 2016

We had an awesome lesson in Science yesterday!

We investigated what happened when vinegar and baking soda are mixed inside a bottle with a balloon on the end.

'I found it very interesting, I didn't know that the balloon would blow up!' Kezia G
'We learnt that because vinegar is an acid and baking soda is a base, when they are mixed a chemical reaction occurs and carbon dioxide is made.' Abbie B
'The balloon inflated it was so cool!' Elliot H
'I thought the balloon was going to pop! So much gas was being created. This is known as effervescing.' Elliott U
