        Cooking with Sugar | Exploratorium

        In this interactive activity adapted from the Exploratorium, learn how different ingredients and the application of heat influence how different types of candy are made. This activity presents a scientific definition of sugar, including an illustration of a sugar molecule; explains how candy makers prevent crystallization from ruining their creations; and addresses the question: Is sugar bad for your teeth?

        This media asset was adapted from the Exploratorium’s  Candy-o-Matic.
