Wondering WHY the valentines day science experiment works?  Changes in density as gas is added when the alka selzer tablet begins to release (see above) which causes the liquids to move, float up, and sink down through the oil. Thus the lava lamp is created! This activity is simple and allows the kids to see what is happening as you explain what and how it is occurring.
