Candy is more than a sugary snack. With candy, you can become a scientific detective. Test candy for secret ingredients. Peel the skin off candy corn, or float an "m" from M&M's. Spread candy dyes into rainbows, or pour rainbow layers of colored water. Turn candy into crystals. Sink marshmallows, float taffy, or send soda spouting skyward. You can even make your own lightning.
Candy Experiments teaches kids a new use for their candy. As children try eye-popping experiments, such as growing enormous gummy worms and turning cotton candy into slime, they'll also be learning science. Best of all, they'll willingly pour their candy down the drain.
Candy Experiments contains 57 science experiments, 29 of which have never been previously published. Chapter themes include secret ingredients, blow it up, sink and float, squash it, and other fun experiments about color, density, and heat. The book is written for children between the ages of 7 and 10, though older and younger ages will also enjoy it. Each experiment includes basic explanations of the relevant science, such as how cotton candy sucks up water because of capillary action, how Pixy Stix cool water because of an endothermic reaction, and how gummy worms grow enormous because of the water-entangling properties.
