Mad Scientists Club: Food Science

  • Program Goals
    • Experiment with food (often crosses with mixing magic/chemical reactions)
    • Attendance: 35
Experiment: Popcorn Science
Experiment: Candy Science
  • Experiments from Candy Experiments by Loralee Leavitt
    • candy - sour, tootsie-rolls, peeps, etc.
    • baking soda
    • dishes, containers
I had one person handing out pre-measured amounts of candy and the kids could take it to different stations.

Evaluation

  • 10-13-16 (popcorn science)
    • Attendance: 50
    • Notes: Nobody really does science, they just POP ALL THE CORN. We went through 3 bags of white popcorn, a bottle of yellow popcorn, and several cobs of ornamental corn (it generally smokes and does not pop well. I explain to the kids that this is science.). This program does take some cleaning up as popcorn gets everywhere.
