The Science of Candy Project

At school for this thing called the "Art and Academic" fair, I decided to show my love of making candy for the whole school to see. I had a posterboard with six papers glued to it: an Introduction, the "Soft Ball" stage, the "Firm Ball" stage, the "Hard Ball" stage, the "Soft Crack" stage, and finally, the "Hard Crack" stage. I showed which temperature the sugar and water was cooked at, what it felt like if it were to be dropped in cold water, and some of the candies that are made in that stage. I set out pieces of candy in ziploc bags that were made in the stage for them to feel and see. I believe that it was a big hit!
