Project STEM-Pumpkin Science

  Students each carved pumpkins at home and brought them in to watch what happens when you mix hydrogen peroxide, dry yeast, warm water, dish soap and food coloring.

I mixed together the hydrogen peroxide, dish soap and food coloring in a small Dixie cup and put the cup inside the pumpkin. Students mixed together the warm water and the dry yeast. Project STEM counted down... 3....2....1 GOOOO!!!! One by one the students combined the mixtures and watched as their pumpkins became oozing jack-o-lanterns!
