Edible/Inedible Experiments Archive

Science should be fun.. science should be edible..
Try your hand at experimental science! Some experiments may be eaten before, during or after the experiment, and some should not be eaten at all!

Each file lists an expected age-level to carry out the experiment, as well as safety precautions. Many of the experiments will require nothing more than a quick rummage through the kitchen cabinets. Have fun, and remember, safety first.

If you think you have an experiment worthy of the archive, feel free to fill out the online experiment acquisition form. Further sites with demonstrations can be located in the Demos section of the MadSci Library.
Bon Appetit..
