Another year done with the Science Fair... Hallelujah!!!! Only 7 more of those suckers left! Why do I hate doing them so bad? I am not quite sure because actually Kent enjoys them and is the one that helped Abbie with it the most. I think it is just the fact that it hangs over our heads until its done, it takes a lot of time, and I am just an all around party pooper!! Actually, Abbie did a great job and had fun doing it. So, until next year...


Which soda had the most carbonation?


First, she marked the starting level of the soda and then shook (is that a word?) it for 1 min.

Then she marked the level after opening it.

To find out how much soda was lost she started with 500ml of water and...
measured how much water it took to fill it back up to the starting level.
Her very scientific experiment showed that Sprite indeed had the most carbonation!

Shake it up baby, twist and shout!! It looks like a fantastic science project and a good way to keep warm in CS! Looks like another winner to me Abbie! Love you!

Shaking pop for a minute looks like a pretty good workout! Were her arms sore the next day?

Abby - I hope you win!

Way to go girl! looks like you did a Great job! & now i understand better why i don't really like Sprite--too much carbonation! haha

That's awesome. Any science experiment that has to do with food (or I guess beverages in this case) gets an A+ by me!

Maybe you're not much for the projects since they often become a parent project (at least supervised in the case) with prep time and purchases. This one looked like lots of fun.
