Today we're leaving the details up to you, but we want to see how you can use things in your house to create a chemical reaction! We've given you a few examples to choose from below, but feel free to think outside of the box and teach us what you learned!
What ingredients might you need to mimic a volcanic eruption in your own backyard? (the first photo below might give you some hints, but there is one ingredient you can't see in the photo that is KEY to the eruption).
Once you figure out all of your ingredients, try changing the amounts of the various ingredients. How will changing amounts change the eruption?
Be sure to share photos or videos of your experiments on the Alaska 4-H Facebook page!
