About Experiment #13A: A Bad Idea
By carefully drilling holes in the bottle just above the soda level, we get a multi-spray Diet Coke & Mentos fountain that we call a crown. We had the great idea of hanging a crown from a twisted rope so that, as the rope untwists, the crown spins.

It seemed like a good idea at the time...

How Does This Work?
What makes the soda fly out of the bottle? Will you explode if you drink Coke and eat Mentos? Click here to find out!

Try This at Home!
Yes, you can try this at home! You can get your own Coke & Mentos Kit, which includes nozzles just like the ones we use, or you can click here to learn how you can do it with stuff from around your house.
