4th grade students in Ms. Adkinson's class learned the science behind the oozing pumpkin.
After you combine the hydrogen peroxide and dish soap together, did you notice anything?Once they are added together a reaction begins to take place! This reaction would take hours to complete without the help of the yeast. Yeast serves as a CATALYST, which helps to speed up the chemical reaction. Catalysts can be found all over the world, one way to think of a catalyst is to imagine walking to school. If you were going to walk to school it would take a long time. However, if you were to ride a bus you would get to school much faster. In this scenario the catalyst is the bus, helping you get to school faster!
