Dancing kernels of corn



  • Water
  • Large jar
  • Baking soda
  • Corn kernels
  • Vinegar



  1. Place two cups of water in a large jar.
  2. Add 2 tablespoons of baking soda to the water and mix everything well.
  3. Then add corn kernels to the mixture.
  4. Then add 1 cup of vinegar. This will overload the mixture, so be prepared to spill some.
  5. Then watch the grains dance. The idea here is that Eli let everyone do whatever they wanted without worrying. Just like kernels do what they want.
  6. Adding more vinegar may cause the reaction to recur.


  • This experiment can also be done with soda.
