When it comes to science experiments, mine pretty much always “go wrong.” Just look at my high school report card to understand what I mean. I can’t remember the last time I tried a science experiment that went as planned. So the teacher in this video can rest assured that she’s not alone! Then again, it’s easy for me to say that when I don’t have to spend the afternoon cleaning up after the failed science experiment. The best part of a failed science experiment is that it’s usually fun to watch, less fun to clean up. Which is why this video is win win for us! Check out how the science experiment gone terribly wrong explodes in kitchen!
Who knew an explosion that violent could happen from a simple science experiment?!
This isn’t your typical paper mâché volcano boiling over with baking soda experiment. Whatever ingredients she’s mixing in the empty two liter are pretty volatile. The video starts with an eager teacher trying out a science experiment in her kitchen. She’s probably just testing the waters before doing it in front of her class. You know, never want something to go wrong in class and some kid loses an eye! Thank the heavens she did a trial run, because things do go wrong! It doesn’t take long before we see her lean over with a beaker and pour a clear liquid into the two liter. Within three seconds, a literal volcano of colored liquid is squirting into the air and covering the ceiling! Suggestion: maybe a little less of the clear ingredient next time!?
It looks like a bomb went off!
Just watching her reaction is worth the price of admission. She is just absolutely blown away with what’s happening. She tries in vain to cover the explosion, to keep it from getting all over the kitchen. But needless to say, her attempts are futile. By the end of the video, it looks like the kitchen might even need a new paint job. But the good news is, clearly no one is hurt in the making of this video. It’s not a real explosion, of course. Basically think of the mentos in soda experiment and multiply that by ten!
Do you think the neighbors felt it?
When was the last time you tried an experiment at home like this? My kids did the mini-volcano recently and it made quite a mess. I couldn’t help but think to myself, “let’s hope their strengths are in the liberal arts!” What do you think you would have done if you were in her shoes? I can already hear your answer, “I would’ve mixed it properly so it didn’t explode.” That’s not what I mean! How would you have responded to an exploding science experiment in your kitchen? If your response was anything like hers, then you probably should send us the video of it! Heck, why not try a few (safe) experiments in your kitchen, record them all, and send em HERE!
