Exploding Mentos and a Trash Can Volcano: Volcanology at Home

Join Lamont volcanologist and PhD candidate Henry Towbin for a demonstration of theĀ famous Trash Can Volcano explosion. Henry shows you how to create small at-home volcanoes using easily found kitchen items like baking soda, seltzer, and mentos, and explains the science behind it and how it related to real-life volcanoes. Then we see footage of the big Open House attraction: the trash can volcano. Don't try that one at home!
