Autumn is the corn harvest season. Children love popcorn made from corn. But did you know there's a lot of science behind corn? Can you make corn dance? Today’s science experiment for kids in Alpha science classroom, It is believed that children will enjoy this magical science experiment activity of corn children.

Alpha science classroom:Magic Dancing Corn Science Experiment

Alpha Science Classroom likes to use science that is easy to use and fun to play with and very interesting. This simple children's science experiment is easy to do at home, and kids can bring it into the classroom to show their classmates the wonders of corn!


Alpha science classroom:Dancing Corn Science Experimental Materials for Children

  • Tall Jar or Glass {mason jars work well}

  • 1/8-1/4 cup of popping corn

  • 2 tbsp of baking soda

  • 1 cup  of vinegar (use as needed)

  • 2 cups of water

Alpha science classroom:Steps of Making Science Experiment of Dancing Corn for Children

1.Children can use almost any tall glass or jar to get the corn they need.

2.Fill the jar with 2 cups of water

3.Add 2 tablespoons baking soda and mix well. Children can also talk about which solids dissolve in water!

4.Add a drop of food coloring to the water

5.You can add corn or popcorn now. You don't need to add too much to get an interesting dance corn effect.

6.Now this is the most interesting part of our scientific activity of dancing corn - Add vinegar.

Alpha Science Classroom suggests kids slowly add vinegar. We fill a small square cup with vinegar. Wait for the water to erupt!


Alpha science classroom:Science Secret Behind dancing corn for children

Alpha science classroomTeach children that chemistry is all about states of matter, including liquids, solids, and gases. A chemical reaction between two or more substances that alter and form a new substance, In this way, When an acid (liquid: vinegar) is mixed with a base (solid: baking soda), a gas called carbon dioxide is produced, which erupts and dances.

The secret to the magic dancing corn is the baking soda and vinegar chemical reaction.  The carbon dioxide bubbles lift the corn, but as the bubbles pop, the corn falls back down! You can repeat this experiment over and over again. We watched the corn “dance” for 30 minutes!

Alpha science classroom: The magic of children's science experiments is finished, 

Children can do this children's science experiment together with parents, explore the magic of chemistry, not only have a good time but also encourage children to further increase their interest in science, better learn scientific knowledge! Alpha Science Classroom has many magical chemistry experiment toys and all kinds of magical chemical reactions so that children can learn the most interesting knowledge. Parents can choose suitable children's science experiments toy sets for children to achieve their scientific dreams!
