Dancing Raisins Science Experiment!

 

We conducted a science experiment with raisins and sprite. We used a handful of raisins and put them in a glass with sprite. We also put a handful of raisins in a glass with water so that we could see the difference between both.

The raisins that we put in the glass with water sunk to the bottom of the glass. The raisins in the glass with sprite started dancing! The raisins dropped to the bottom of the glass and floated to the top again! Teacher put on some dance music in the background to add to the idea of the raisins dancing. We learnt that the carbon dioxide in the sprite caused the raisins to start dancing!
