Make a snowstorm in a jar

Learn about liquid and gas in this fun science experiment to make a snow blizzard

In this simple science experiment, you watch bicarbonate of soda react with an effervescent tablet - stand back to see the snow storm you create! This is a great experiment for the young engineer at home or as a full lesson in school to think about density and reactions.
