Another CO2 experiment with a POP!

This was a super fun experiment, we used an entire box of antacids.  We used some 35mm film canisters that I have had stored for awhile.  You could use any little container that seals.  The kids filled them about 3/4 full of water, dropped in an antacid tablet, snapped on the lid and ran.  The tablet and water create CO2 which makes the lid pop off.  It is soooo fun.  I was so happy that I actually captured the POP on film, it happens so fast. We counted how long it took each one, though we didn't get past 5.

That looks way too fun. Now, do I still have any film canisters?
