International Year of Chemistry: the balloon

MATERIALS:
- A bottle.
- A balloon.
- Vinegar.
- Sodium bicarbonate.
- A funnel.
INSTRUCTIONS:
- Fill half of the bottle with vinegar.
- Fill the balloon with sodium bicarbonate. Use the funnel.
- Adjust the balloon to the bottle.
- Pour the bicarbonate to the vinegar.
- The balloon starts to blow up.
WHY?
When bicarbonate mixes with vinegar (an acid) it produces carbon dioxide. This is the gas that blows the balloon up.
