Dancing Pasta

Wanna make pasta dance? Check out this easy science experiment that goes perfectly with the book "Strega Nona"

McKenzie and I made a HUGE mess trying out this science experiment to go with Strega Nona. We’ve learned a thing or two and want to share our new found wisdom with you! This experiment uses water, vinegar, and baking soda to make noodles dance!

Materials:

  1. Large glass cup or vase
  2. Tray
  3. 2 cups water
  4. 2 cups vinegar
  5. Blue Food Coloring
  6. 1 T Baking Soda
  7. Some cooked pasta (not thin pasta! We suggest Linguini)

Video Instructions:


We used thin spaghetti and got one pretty sad noodle to move. The bubbles need a little something to hold on to so the noodles can get their groove on. Enjoy!
