Default Okay I may be able to help

Okay first of all, you picked a very good project to do. I am also in 8th grade and live on and Island off the coast of Japan. I had the same problem but I asked my teacher and she said "Start with a hypothesis" so which of those mints do you think will make the best reaction. After that you should test your hypothesis. I would try each mint 3 times so you get the best result. Measure how high the cascade went and write it down. Then write a summary...like " I did this first...and....This is what happened" Try writing a parragraph for each of your results. Then I would ask my teacher to review it.

start with a comparison any type and when you get a comparison you can start your project(doing similar project) find the nutrition facts for the coke and the mints
