Chemistry can involve boring books or awesome things like candy! Join me for the latter as we explore the pH of candy and how it can effect our dental health.
Meets once for 90 minutes.
In this class, students will learn the vocabulary terms: acid, base, alkaline, pH, pH scale. Students will participate in developing a working hypothesis for the outcome of this lab. We will test different types of candy for levels of acidity and alkalinity. Then, we will analyze the results of the lab and develop a conclusion based on our analysis. Is there a sweeter way to learn science?! No way!
