Two main types of soda explosions include the often accidental exploding can trick, and the classic Mentos and Diet Coke method. Here you will find instructions on both, and it will be up to you to decide which method you like best!
This Instructable was made at my cousins house, where there is a great stone patio which is optimal for these two experiments.
Step 1: Can Bomb-Materials
For the exploding can experiment you will need:
-A portable plug in stovetop or outdoor fire.
-Can(s) of cheap soda (no need to waste the good stuff).
-Extension cord (optional).
-A safe hiding spot at least ten feet away from the test site. (Sometimes shrapnel can break off of the can, so I watched from behind a tree).
