Alka-Seltzer Science Experiment
May 03, 2011
Here is a fun, quick science experiment: Put an Alka-Seltzer tablet (or off brand) into a plastic film can. Add water, put the top on, and place it upside down on a surface. Move away! It will explode and make a loud pop. Kids LOVE it! The reason this happens is because a chemical reaction occurs creating carbon dioxide. If you have more time, have the kids create more experiments. You can alter the temperature or amount the water or try a different liquid.
