Hi!  It’s Tuesday, November 2, 2010 and time for Science at ClickSchooling!

Recommended Website:
Candy Experiments

Age Range: All (Children will need adult supervision.)

ClickScholar Kelly recommended this website created by a mom who is a writer with a science background and her inquisitive daughter. Together they’ve developed an incredible archive of free science experiments you can conduct with candy

As explained at the website, this all began when her daughter asked a life-changing question: “What would happen if I put these Nerds in water?” 

That first candy experiment led to many with results like these:

“Drop a Warhead in baking soda water, and bubbles erupt. Leave a Skittle in water, and the S floats to the surface. Melt a Starburst, and shiny oil spots form.”

When you get to the site you’ll see a menu of candy experiments.  Click on any one and a new page opens with a list of materials needed and instructions on how to conduct the experiment. Try:

  • Pixie Stix Acid Test
  • M&M chromatography
  • Skittles Density Rainbow
  • Life Savers Lights
  • Starburst Oil Test
  • ~And Many More!

Use the horizontal menu at the top of the page to access:

*In Action – Watch videos of the candy experiments!

*Printables – Get free printable experiment cards!

*Party Tips – Find a list of suggestions for conducting a successful candy experiment party!

You can also read blog entries, find links to articles about candy, and lots of other fun stuff.
