- Great puddles of pop! Review by Jeanne Kacprowicz
We used this kit (and the website)to augment our school science fair project. It really made a difference! The kids enjoyed learning about the science of the soda geysers almost as much as they enjoyed making the geysers. We also learned that moving quickly at the end of a geyser means getting to drink from the geyser stream like it's a drinking fountain! (Posted on 4/2/13)
