Preform a science experiment just like Marie Curie.
Supplies Needed; Vinegar, baking soda, a balloon and a water bottle.
Directions; Start off by carefully measuring 80 mls vinegar (use the scientific name "acetic acid" for extra fun) and pour it into a water bottle. Using a funnel, fille a balloon with 2 tablespoons baking soda (call this sodium bicarbonate). Attach the balloon to the bottle, pick up the balloon and watch the chemical reaction occur.
