CANDY....yum! This sugary treat has a LOT of rich history and science behind it. Kids will transform into chemists and historians for the day to discover the secrets behind their favorite seasonal confections. PEEPS at Easter, POP ROCKS on The 4th of July, Chocolate at Christmas, CONVERSATION HEARTS for Valentine's Day, and Halloween CANDY CORN will all be examined and dozens more. Kids will log their data collections from the experiments conducted and use their critical thinking skills while creating hypotheses during class. Did you know that your tongue is hairy to help you taste your favorite treats? What happens to our brain when we consume sugar? Did you know that tootsie rolls were first individually wrapped penny candy? There will be no candy conversation your kids can't conquer after this class! BONUS MATERIAL: Retro candy sampling and 10 Cool Ideas For All That Leftover Halloween Candy.
