Boston Science Fair Jada Nemeth, a Boston School seventh-grader, adds Alka-Seltzer to her “Coca-Cola Lava Lamp” experiment during the Boston School Science Fair, Tuesday, March 14. The fair included students in grades 6 – 8. Jada tested her hypothesis that adding heat to a mixture of Coca-Cola, vegetable oil and Alka-Seltzer would cause bubbles created by the mixture to speed up. The experiment proved her hypothesis to be correct, Jada said.
