Praise for Soda Pop Science:

"The product of a collaboration between Scientific Explorer and the Lawrence Hall of Science at the University of California, Berkeley, this kit encourages kids to think about chemistry by mixing their own soft drinks. The set includes citric acid, baking soda, and various flavorings. Kids supply water and a willingness to experiment. Our testers loved creating fizzy, flavorful sodas. Even when experiments went awry, producing the worst-tasting sodas since New Coke, they would drink them down just for the gross-out factor."
—Family Fun Magazine

"...the staff and volunteers at the Lawrence Hall of Science at the University of California at Berkeley have been helping kids learn and develop for years, and now some of that good work is available at toy stores everywhere...They have created kits that appeal equally to boys and girls...there's serious educational theory at play here, too."
— San Francisco Chronicle
