That’s exactly what will happen when you visit your local Del Taco. We’re excited to announce the release of four science toys that we wrote for Del Taco as part of their Kid Loco Meals. The four toys are called Loco 2 Liter Learning because each toy comes with cool science experiments you can try at home using a 2-liter soda bottle.
Each toy comes with a special toy that fits on top of a 2-liter soda bottle and a “deck” of cards with fun soda bottle science experiments. Learn how to make a tornado in a bottle, create a baking soda volcano, inflate a balloon in a bottle (impossible!), use a soda bottle as a bubble blower and create bubbling lava liquid… all in the name of science. Each deck also includes important information about recycling plastic.
We at Steve Spangler Science are excited about Del Taco’s desire to make their kids’ meals both fun and educational. Teachers work hard to make science fun and meaningful in their classrooms. This type of informal science education is the next step in a wave of public response for greater emphasis on math and science. Any time we can make science fun outside the classroom, our chances are greater for getting kids hooked.
