Using fruit to preserve bread
This experiment was performed to compare how adding fruit paste to bread made it last longer without s. The tests were done using paste made from prunes, raisins and dates added to the bread before baking.
How to make a baking soda volcano
You can create quite a fizzle by mixing baking soda/sodium bicarbonate - a base with vinegar/acetic acid. Well.. it's theoretically 'edible' but I wouldn't recommend tasting it (yuck!).
Why do bakers use yeast to bake breads?
One thing you'll learn in this experiment is that yeast does, in fact, produce carbon dioxide gas.
What is baking powder and what is it used for?
Many recipes call simply for baking soda rather than baking powder. Usually these recipes use some kind of liquid acid like buttermilk or yogurt to react with the baking soda to produce the bubbles.
In this cool science experiment, you’ll show how to make raisins "swim" up and down in a jar, using nothing more than a few things that you commonly find in a kitchen.
Do different types of firewood produce different amounts of heat?
This experiment was done to find out whether different types of firewood will burn at different temperatures. The results will help us to choose the ideal type of wood to use in campfires or outdoor cooking.
Does the type of sand affect the durability of bricks
What makes some bricks stronger than others? This science fair project aims to compare the effect of sand particle size on brick durability.
How to store bread safely

How are roads and pavements made? Can you simulate this using chocolate?
I wanted to develop a hands-on activity related to my field of interest -- civil engineering with an emphasis in pavement and materials. Asphalt cookies were the perfect solution. Asphalt cookies are chocolate no-bake cookies. The process of making these cookies parallels the procedures used to produce asphalt pavements.
