Science With Sabrina: Creating A Volcano

School is back in session, but the kids can still learn science at home! Meteorologist Sabrina Bates teamed up with 5NEWS Erika Thomas’ son, Axl, to create a volcano in this week’s Science with Sabrina. 


To make the dough:

  • 6 cups of flour
  • 2 cups of salt
  • 4 tablespoons of cooking oil
  • 2 cups of warm water

To put into the plastic bottle:

  • warm water
  • dish detergent
  • red food coloring
  • 2 tablespoons of baking soda
  • vinegar

The "eruption" happens because of the chemical reaction between baking soda and vinegar! We created a small and simple version of a volcanic eruption for kids to try at home.
