Halloween has come and gone, and there are bags of leftover candy to prove it. Once you’ve had your fill of the sweet stuff, you can have plenty of fun with the leftover Halloween candy with science experiments! From sorting games with young children to candy chromatography, there is plenty to do with leftover Halloween candy that doesn’t involve consuming all that sugar. An all-time favorite experiment is finding out what happens when you soak gummy candies in water and other liquids. It might be fun to measure and compare different brands and colors, too.
How would you like to conduct some fun and educational experiments with your friends or family, support a local nonprofit organization and be entered to win some awesome prizes, without even having to get out of your comfy clothes or leave your living room?
Don’t Try This At Home! is a series of exciting live shows, full of extreme science you won’t see anywhere else. Where else can you see an electrostatic generator make cereal fly out of your hand, or watch what happens when you attach toilet paper to a leaf blower? These shows are shocking, messy and loud, and are both educational and fun. Even the most innovative and creative young scientists can’t do these experiments anywhere else!
The Fleet’s Tinkering Studio, a place where tinkerers of all ages can create, explore and experiment, has expanded to include the Tinkerers’ Club!
