Peeps Science Experiment

On Monday we started a Peeps science experiment.  We want to find out which solvents will dissolve the Peeps (our solid).  The solvents we are using are tomato juice, Mountain Dew, water, vinegar and vegetable oil. Our hypothesis is that the Mountain Dew, tomato juice and vegetable oil will dissolve the peeps.  Right now the water, vinegar and Mountain Dew appear to be the best solvents. Stay tuned for our results.

Here is what the original Peep looked like.

vinegar, water and jars.
