Mentos - Science investigation
A complete investigation pack with resources to allow pupils to predict, experiment and evaluate upon a Mentos investigation.

The resources are based on two different Mentos experiments with resources for each.

Experiment 1 - Original Mentos in different carbonated drinks.

Experiment 2 - Different flavour of Mentos in diet cola.

Pupils will have access to nutritional information to all aspects of both investigations which they can use to create their predictions. They will be encouraged to use their numeracy and reading skills to create their predictions.

A key vocabulary sheet is also provided as well as an introductory PowerPoint.

In order for the experiment to be controlled effectively a Geyser Tube will need to be purchased. These are easily accessible from a range of sites including Amazon -

This truly is one of the best Science investigations I have completed with the pupils and it really engages them.
