P4362: Make Mentos Explode in Splash Spring 2015 (Apr. 11 - 12, 2015)
Mentos and soda- ever wondered why they erupt? In this class, we will do our own reactions to learn why. We will explore properties and soda and mentos, including surface tension and acidity. You will do all your experiments in groups, so come ready to be a team player and to learn a bit about the science of explosions.


P4389: Why do some volcanoes expload while others ooze? in Splash Spring 2015 (Apr. 11 - 12, 2015)
Wonder why some volcanoes spew ash (http://news.nationalgeographic.com/news/2009/02/images/090202-tokyo-volcano-ash-pictures-ap_big.jpg ) whereas others ooze lava (http://www.montserratvolcano.org/Kelud%202007,%20(Tom%20Pfeiffer%20-%20www.volcanodiscovery.com).jpg , http://www.montserratvolcano.org/Colima%20lava%20dome.jpg )? Through small group activities and discussion, we will learn why volcanoes erupt. How does liquid from the mantle reach the surface? How does the liquid from the mantle change as it goes to the suface? At the end, you'll deduce the story of two magmas from a volcano that scientists just recently studied.
