Morgan’s Week of Valentine’s Day Fun Smart Science: Creating Some Great Chemistry for Valentine’s Day

Hi guys! Today on Smart Science we are making CO2 ( a.k.a. carbon dioxide ). So here are the things you need :

  • Baking Soda
  • Vinegar
  • A bowl

co2

But first, here are some answers to some questions you might have about carbon dioxide:

What is carbon dioxide?

Carbon dioxide is a gas with no color and with a small odor. It makes up .03 percent of our air. To read more about CO2 visit this link.

Is carbon dioxide found in any common items?

Yes! It’s actually what makes your soda or seltzer bubbly. Carbon dioxide is forced into the soda or seltzer using pressure and it dissolves. But later it turns back into a gas and becomes the bubbles that make your drink fizz.

Now let’s get back to talking about how to make CO2:

Step 1: First, Fill the bowl a quarter of the way up with baking soda. Next add a bit of vinegar until…it bubbles up! Those bubbles are your CO2!

Why does this happen? Well…I can tell you! In short, it is a chemical reaction because baking soda is a base and vinegar is an acid, so when you combine them they react. (If you want to learn more about acids and bases visit this link.)

Thank you for reading my post on carbon dioxide! If you have any science experiments you would like me to try, email me and I will start experimenting right away!

Stay tuned for day 3 of my Valentine’s Day week!

Morgan’s Week of Valentine’s Day Fun Book Review: Macarons at Midnight

Hi Guys! Today I will be reviewing a book by: Suzanne Nelson, “Macarons at Midnight.” I would give this book a five out of 5 stars because this book is pretty amazing! It is a perfect book for Valentine’s Day, plus it’s a fun and crazy book that will make you want to keep reading.

But that’s not all, this book is part of the “Wish” series. Suzanne Nelson doesn’t write all the books in this series. There are different authors for different books, which I think is pretty cool.

Now back to “Macarons at Midnight.” The book is about a girl named Lise Santos, who one night, stumbles into a bakery during a midnight taste test. She sits down and she meets the guy of her dreams. Once she has to go, she never got to ask him his name. She tries to find out who he is, but once she finds out, she doesn’t get along with him as well as the night at the bakery. She started getting really confused. Wasn’t this supposed to be her happily ever after? This book is a lot like Cinderella, but without the shoe. If you want to find out what happens you should really try reading this book.

Stellar Stuff: Crazy Cool Fashion

Hi guys! Today I will be showing you some crazy cool fashion! If you are looking for some new stuff to get, this is your chance. So let’s get started!

  1.  S Lights by Sketchers. You should check out these awesome shoes! The outsole of the shoe lights up a bunch of different colors. I believe they have to go on a charger and they can die when you are wearing them, but other than that, not too shabby! There is a button inside of the shoe to turn on the colors and you can do different colors on each shoe too. I hope you check them out but keep in mind these are boys shoes so if you’re a girl you might need to order a different size than you usually do.sneaker

2.Should I Have a Donut? Graphic Tee by: Justice. Cause who doesn’t like DONUTS?! This shirt is full of detail and looks amazing!
