Erupting Volcano – Sick Science! #070
Learn more at http://www.stevespanglerscience.com/experiment/erupting-peroxide-volcano Volcanoes have shaped history and science since the dawn of time. From the ultra-destructive Mount Vesuvius to the more recent Eyjafjallajokull volcano in Iceland (good luck pronouncing that one), volcanic eruptions can dramatically alter the world with their massive blasts. Perhaps that’s why, for decades, students have been awed by the reproduction of volcanic eruptions by their teachers using vinegar and baking soda. We get that and have come up with a way that you can replicate a volcanic blast without the stench of vinegar in your nostrils.

Yeast is a Fungi…
What about coke and mentos?
I wounder what would hapen if I add food colering

the way that works is that yeast is a catalyst of hydrogen peroxide the higher percentage of hydrogen peroxide you get the bigger the foam and more
