It's a classic baking soda and vinegar volcano! Also considered to be the acme of bad science projects back when I was in the business of judging junior high and high school science fairs.

I wanted real lava but Dad insisted that baking soda and vinegar with red dye #2 was good enough.
Will it be enough to lure little girls into science? I don't know. I had a couple of chemistry sets as a kid, and look how I turned out.
