Chocolate and Candy Science


Created by Michael, last updated 2015-11-13

I'm going to be doing a summer camp this year with the theme of chocolate and candy, so this is my provisional list of things I'm going to try for the camp. It is running at the same time as a local chocolate festival so it should make for a fun week!

Any edible experiment is a good idea...

Scream for Ice Cream

I've done this before, so it is being added with confidence. I might try and get some liquid nitrogen too so we can make some even quicker...

Got Seaweed?

There are some bits of this which I think might work. I like the idea of doing something about what's in your food, and could even take it in a molecular gastronomy direction. Suggestions?

Geodesic Gumdrops: Candy and Toothpick Architecture

Simple, but effective and one that anybody can do at home too. Not a fan of the mini marshmallow and spaghetti variation because of the level of frustation and potential for mess.

Rock Candy

I did this when I was a kid, and so this is a definite for the camp.
