corrosiveness of soda...

so you find yourself in 6th grade and facing a dilema... the dreaded science fair projects. never fear, look to your family and see what the majority enjoy, then turn that into your project! kade's uncle needs to be hooked up to a pepsi iv, kade's grandma can't live without her dt. coke, kade's dad thinks he has to have a mt. dew once a day (we get to hear about the miserable 'sunday' headaches if he doesn't make a pit stop saturday night), his aunt is a closet soda drinker (you know who you are... hehehe), the list can go on and on. i don't typically buy soda and have personally not had caffeine in over 10 years (yes, I am a hero), so dad had to bring home the required soft drinks and brand new pennies.

step one...

coca cola, mt. dew, orange shasta, and (my favorite) sprite

step two...

step three...


step four...

step five... and the conclusion
poster, written report (forgot to take photos but, they were awesome). coca cola was the absolute most corrosive and if it can do what it did to a penny in one weeks time, well good luck to your guts. when kade came home from school the day of the final judging i asked how it went... kade's exact words, 'my judge was a girl and she was hot!' so glad we invested 2 1/2 plus weeks into the project and that is what he got out of it. his dad was so proud.

I love him. I have recently given up Diet Coke. Glad I did it before I read your post.
