It is a Crash Test, Dummy

Students research air bags on the Internet and use the information to design their own version of an air bag. After exploring the benefits and dangers of air bags students perform a chemistry lab in which they mix baking soda and vinegar in a Ziploc bag, with the goal of determining the correct ratio of acid and base that leaves no appreciable amount of either reactant behind, yet fully inflates the bag.
