*Safety Alert* Dry ice is relatively safe, but it can be dangerous if handled incorrectly. Please see our dry ice safety FAQs for more information about safety, storage, and handling.

Dry Ice Experiments with Water

We’ve all seen how dry ice bubbles and smokes in warm water. Just plopping a chunk of dry ice into water can be entertainment enough! The dry ice science experiments below take dry ice in water to another level by both thrilling students and teaching them important science concepts along the way.

Experiments with Dry Ice that Pop

The most unique property of dry ice is how it sublimes, or changes directly from a solid to carbon dioxide gas. With a buildup of gas, the pressure rises very quickly, making for some especially cool experiments with dry ice. This rise in pressure can fuel amazing pops and rocket launches that will make adults and kids alike cheer!
