"You can program them to go forwards, backwards, go side to side, and make sounds,” Holley said, adding he anticipates more club experiments.

Brian Bass brought his 11-year-old daughter, Aliyah, who wanted to see what the event was about.

Both were waiting to see one of the Mentos rockets shoot off outside the cafeteria.

While inside the cafeteria, they noticed a familiar experiment.

"We noticed that her science project is one of the experiments that they have going on inside," Brian Bass said.

"It's the one where they blow up a balloon using yeast and vinegar," Aliyah said, adding that such projects fuel her enjoyment of science class.

The event inspired Tiffany Plunkett, who teaches science to elementary students.
