Edible Glass

A nine-page narrative gives you the material needed to teach high schoolers about molecular structure, in particular, that of sugars. You may want to display the accompanying molecule diagrams through a projector to increase understanding. After the lecture, learners go to the lab to calibrate a thermometer and combine sugar, corn syrup, butter, and boiling water to concoct a sweet confection. This is a tasty lesson in thermodynamics or the structure of saccharides.
