Dancing Raisins

In this science experiment you can do at home, we walk through how to use lemon lime soda to vary the density of raisins and watch as they appear to dance.​ To use this experiment for a science fair project, consider questions like: What objects are more dense than raisins? What objects are less dense?

 

PROCEDURES

1. Fill a tall, clear container with lemon lime soda.

2. Drop about 50 raisins into the container.

3. Observe the carbon dioxide bubbles in the carbonation cling to the outside of the raisins until the raisins rise to the surface where the bubbles pop, sending the raisins back down in the liquid.
