The effort by the students, teachers and alumni of Punggol Secondary School was good enough for the Singapore Book of Records - for creating the most number of simultaneous Cola-Mentos geysers here.

The educational aim: To create more awareness of science. All the participants had to do was to drop Mentos sweets into a 1.5 litre bottle of diet cola.

See Youtube video of a 504 geysers exploding in Cincinnati, Ohio. Now, imagine 1,500 of them going off simultaneously.

The Great Singapore Mass Activity is part of the
Singapore Science Festival, which aims to encourage people to “KNOW WHY” and promote a habit for l…
