Hotel Had Never Seen 158 Exploding Bottles of Soda
When the front desk called my room and asked, “Mr. Spangler… do you want us to deliver the 200 bottles of Diet Coke to your room?”, I knew that they didn’t completely understand what was about to happen. On July 10th, I was invited to present a program on creativity to the youth who were attending the National Speakers Association annual convention in San Diego. The presentation was titled Candy Creativity and you can probably guess where I was going with this. Armed with a few cases of Geyser Tube toys and a few hundred rolls of Mentos, I met up with the kids in the courtyard of the Manchester Grand Hyatt.
Hey Spangler Crew!
That video was awesome and it inspired a re-creation in our cul-de-sac. We had one minor technical glitch as the dad that bought the mentos bought fruit flavored so we are shooting for the Friday before school starts for a do-over!!
Thanks for all your great ideas – My kids love your kits for their birthday parties and I am know the favorite on a boring summer afternoon to liven things up with a science experiment!!
Tami Lipson and company!
We did something similar to this in school, but it was nowhere near as effective!
That was ace. I’m off to the shops now to stock up on mentos and fizzy pop…
