Soda Pop Science Lab
|Take a close look at soda pop using an integrated science
approach! Your students will test the physical properties and
investigate the chemical composition of carbonated sodas. Then
they'll formulate hypotheses, checking their predictions with
experiments that they design and conduct themselves. In the
process, they'll reveal the composition and nutritional value of
various sodas, while gaining a basic understanding of the
scientific method, experimental design and basic problem-solving
|Activities are designed to meet key National Science
Standards, including "Abilities Necessary to Do Scientific
Inquiry", "Understanding Scientific Inquiry" and
many others. Also provides dozens of suggested ideas for follow-on
investigations, assessment ideas and associated website links.
Developed by Professor Abour H. Cherif (Columbia) and Professor
