Dancing Corn

Watch as the corn in this experiment inspires you to move and groove! Adjust the amount of baking soda and guess if the corn will dance more or less.

What You’ll Need:

  • Dried corn kernels
  • Vinegar
  • Baking soda
  • Large jar or vase
  • Spoon or stick to stir


Step 1: Pour one cup of dried corn kernels into the jar or vase.  

Step 2: Pour in two cups of vinegar.

Step 3: Sprinkle in baking soda. You can experiment with how much baking soda you add and how much your corn dances.

Step 4: Watch your corn start to dance! Give it a big stir to watch it dance again!
