DescriptionA scientific experiment you can eat!
Crystals grow to full size in just seven days! While quartz crystals take tens of thousands of years to grow in nature, you can grow crystals of sugar in only a few days! In the process, students learn about saturated and supersaturated solutions, seed crystals, and the rate of crystalline growth. Includes a glass jar with lid, five seeded wooden sticks, enough sucrose to grow one rock candy stick, and a study guide with complete instructions. Additional rock candy can be made using ordinary granular sugar (see included study guide for details). You will need to provide a saucepan, spoon, measuring cup, and a stove or hotplate, and adult supervision.
