Second, nuts burn, because they are full of oil, which is fire food. Combine chemistry and geology lessons at once and make delicious rock candy geodes, as shown by this video at How to Cook That.
Add knives and Jell-O, and you got yourself a party. The laser pointer alone is enough to fulfill the fun criteria. But then, after you blow it out and pop the whole thing into your mouth, it will become their favorite sleepover staple.
They start to clump into the delightful fat-spread we call butter. Jell-O Laser Optics You know how your eyes work?
This is a new birth of freedom. But when you use extreme heat to pull them apart, and then introduce a whole bunch of new molecules to the party, everyone has to find new buddies.
The experiment is simply done: And it offers some philosophy, too: Molecules like to stay together. Something for all tastes. Boiling stuff, electric mixer-ing, greasing, powdering and slicing! Because it will make them think your constant threats to go mental have finally become real.
Eat a Candle This one might be slightly more fun to do for the kids before you do it with them. First, kids can learn that of the four types of common corn, only one kind—which is actually called Popcorn!
Grab a magnet and some industrial strength cereal and find out. All you need is an apple, a nut, and some gum. Stuffing slimies into jiggle-goop, then eating. Any kid knows food that has to explode before you eat it is the best food.
At first, not apparent. You call that kid science? Everest is nothing but a sprinkle. Take advantage of this shortcoming to teach your children about earth layers, via rice krispie treats. The end result is often marshmallows. Plus, lots of mashing and squishing.
And this experiment will prove it. Pretty edible rocks inside non-pretty edible rocks. Jell-O has the awesome distinction of both allowing light to pass through, and having enough tiny solid bits inside to reflect the light. They work like Jell-O. Science fair projects about food, sprinkles, krispie treats, and a molten core that looks a little bit disgusting.
Are you really eating iron? Eat a Dandelion Is that really science? Well, buying the chocolate kind of fortification is a good start.
The more interesting shapes you cut your Jell-O into concave and convex especiallythe more different paths the light will take. Well, sorta the same. But this experiment is good way to get your little monster started down the path of manipulating nature in ways no man was ever meant to.
I specifically remember getting in trouble for eating things I found in our yard. We eat metal, the very same metal inside rocks and rusty gates.
Corncob Popcorn Experiment Technically, you can learn this lesson with your average depressing old bag of microwave popcorn. Why is Dad making me watch this candle burn in a dark room?
Your microwave quickly raises that water to the steaming point, and the pressure of the steam rips open the hull and inflates the starchy mush inside. The only thing missing to make it kid heaven is a giant trampoline to bounce on while you eat it.Some of the safest and most interesting science fair projects involve the foods we eat.
Food chemistry projects have the advantage of using materials that are readily available and generally non-toxic.
Okay, this is the hardest part of the whole project picking your topic. But here are some ideas to get you started. Even if you don’t like any, they may inspire you to come up with one of your own.
Simple experiments and activities young kids can do for school or science fair projects. Smell the Difference - Mirror Molecules Even though the same atoms combine to make mirror molecules, the left-handed and right-handed versions can have very different properties, such as smell.
In this food science fair project, you will find out, and you will test different conditions for making butter and determine the best method.
