Science ‘n Stuff: Exploding Fruit!

Inspired by the YouTube video¬†Extreme Exploding Watermelon, we decided to try our hand at exploding some other fruits. We used mango, an orange, a cantaloupe, a honey dew, and apples. Set with a time restraint of 30 minutes, we placed elastics on the honey and cantaloupe prior to our program. In the end, it took about 300 to make the honey dew ‘explode.’

As for the other fruit … not so lucky. the orange and mango were split in half and the apple didn’t budge. We probably needed another 100+ rubber bands for the cantaloupe. But we ran out of time. So we did the next best thing … smashed the fruit!

We had a GREAT school year with the kidlets … Can’t wait for next year!
