Science With Samantha: Cola and Mentos

NBCUniversal, Inc.

This week on Science with Samantha, I’m teaming up with Dallas Children’s Advocacy Center (DCAC) to perform a fun science experiment that can also be used to stimulate your emotions.

Tiana Johnson, a therapist at Dallas Children’s Advocacy Center, is guiding us through this week's science fun.


  • Mentos
  • Bottle of Coca-Cola soda
  • An outside space -- this experiment gets messy!


Watch the video above to see how to perform the experiment.

The mission of Dallas Children’s Advocacy Center (DCAC) is to improve the lives of abused children in Dallas County and to provide national leadership on child abuse issues. The only agency of its kind in Dallas County, DCAC provides a coordinated, multi-disciplinary approach to the investigation, prosecution, and treatment of child abuse cases. In their last fiscal year, DCAC read over 28,000 reports of child abuse and provided services to over 7,300 children and their non-offending family members.
