I hope you have all had a chance to read the fantastic book, Sciene Fair by Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson. If not, go get it right now…don't even finish reading this blog post…it is just that good!!!
For those of you who have read the book you will remember that a character named Brad Pitt Wemplemeyer produced a very interesting science fair project called THE POWER OF SURFACE TENSION. In his science fair project BPW planned to repeat the now famous mentos in the diet Coke explosion but on a massive scale. At the end of the novel his 55 gallon drum of Diet Coke and thousands of glued together Mentos plays a very important role in the cliamax of the story.
We here at SMS Guys Read are taking this fine idea and putting to the test.
Now that you have seen the introduction, check out our test attempt. Remember we plan to do this again on a bigger scale soon.
So check back soon to see our attempt AT A NUCLEAR MENTOS!!!
