Candy Chemistry Set
Few children make it through the grocery store without a “can I have some candy?” I think all parents are sick of facing the question. And sure, you want to reward the kids, but did they do anything to deserve it?
Next time you are faced with the dilemma show the kids the Candy Chemistry Set and say “sure, just make your own candy!” The Candy Chemistry Set from ScientificsOnline.com contains ingredients you would find in your kitchen but challenges the creator’s brains in math, science and cooking. Your junior chemists will learn about topics like crystallization when making rock candy or heat and phases of matter when melting chocolate. They also learn about triboluminescence when making wintergreen candies. (By the way, triboluminescence is the phenomenon that kicks off light when you chomp on wintergreen candies in the dark. Admit it – you did it as a kid.) Cooking skills like measures, weights and volumes are also learned. Included are 25 experiments, molds, a candy thermometer, utencils and a manual all for $34.95. Scientists age 10+, with a recommended adult supervising, will love the set and their concoctions.
