Wet Volcanoes

Our group wrapped up another year of science investigation with the now-traditional Explorers finale: launching streams of soda pop high into the air.

Who Needs Old Faithful?

The Explorers finished a year of science activities in May with a series of soda pop geysers that put the famous Old Faithful to shame. Not to mention the fact that OUR geysers went off on whatever schedule we wished.

In May 2010 the Explorers celebrated their annual pop bottle geyser festival.

This activity takes advantage of a phenomenon known as “nucleation,” in which bubbles form explosively in soda when given a suitable surface to latch onto. And when we say explosively, we MEAN explosively, as those club members who had not experienced this before found out for themselves.
