Set the cup in the snow. Now push snow around the cup so you can’t see the cup anymore. You want it to form a traditional looking volcano with the top open.

Winter STEM Activity

Pour vinegar in the cup and step back to watch the beautiful chemical reaction that occurs when baking soda and vinegar mix!

Curious about the science behind the baking soda and vinegar reaction? When the baking soda meets the vinegar, carbon dioxide is created which causes the mixture to expand. Carbon dioxide is an important gas in the earth’s atmosphere. Carbon Dioxide plays a vital role in regulating the earth’s temperature. Baking soda and vinegar have an acid based reaction, which results in a gas that causes the solution to swell.
