Lollipop Factory and Fudge House Virtual Field Trip

(www.exploratorium.edu/cooking/candy/index.html)

Age Range: All (All grades; children with parental supervision)

 

This ClickScholar-recommended website is part of the larger NSF Exploratorium website, The Accidental Scientist – Science of Cooking.

Today’s link provides two brief tours of: 

  • Kendon Candies in San Jose, California – Tour a lollipop factory.
  • Fudge House at Fisherman’s Wharf in San Francisco, California – See how fudge is made.

When arriving at the link, find the “Behind the Scenes” section and select the text link for either the lollipop factory or the fudge house.

When you get to the lollipop factory page, you will see an introduction about Kendon Candies in San Jose, California – the largest lollipop producer in the United States. Click on the “next” buttons for a brief tour through text and photographs. OR, AND EVEN BETTER – watch the Quicktime or RealPlayer video on the first slide and see the lollipop-making process at the Kendon candy factory.

When you are through learning all about how to make lollipops, click on the “Candy Home Page” link at the bottom of the slide. That will take you back to the “science of candy” page where you can learn how to make candy at home, find out about the chemistry of sugar, and you can take a tour of the Fudge House in San Francisco!

When you have finished with your candy tours, select the “Science of Cooking” image link in the upper left. This will take you to the main menu of the website. Select the “Eggs” page and look for the “Visit a Farm” section to tour an organic egg farm in Petaluma, California.

These short but sweet virtual tours provide a nice overview of the locations. When you have finished your tours, be sure to check out all that the “Science of Cooking” website has to offer.
