Experiments

If you'd like to use a candy experiment at your science fair, here are the guidelines:
  1. Your science fair project should be your own work. If you use a candy experiment idea, put your own spin on it by testing different candies and writing your own explanation.
  2. You must cite my website/book as your source.
  3. Let me know how it goes!

Caution:

  • Don't drink the acid test experiments.  Eating too much baking soda can make you very sick.
  • Grownups should supervise melting experiments.  Melted candy can be much hotter than boiling water.  
  • Never heat a jawbreaker.  Melted jawbreakers have been known to explode and cause serious burns (see Mythbusters Episode 20, 2004)
