CO2 Fire Extinguisher Experiment

Again, from the Steve Spangler website, here is a fun experiment for kids to try, with adult supervision of course.

Your child will need the following:

5 or 6 tea light candles

Baking Soda

White Vinegar

A see-through container made for pouring

Step one- Line up the candles and light them with a match or lighter. (This is where parental supervision is needed).
Step two- Pour some baking soda into the bottom of your container, enough to cover the bottom.
Step three- Pour the vinegar over the baking soda, enough to make it foam up.
Step four- Without pouring out the mixture, put out the tea lights. (Marcus demonstrates this step really well).
