11th Grade Chemistry Food Project

The 11th grade Chemistry of Food project is in full swing! On Wednesday and Thursday, the juniors  conducted a lab where they made popcorn and learned about the chemistry behind it all. 

The purpose of this lab was to teach students how the popcorn changes when popped. Madi said, “Popcorn is a very good example of mass being conserved but once the popcorn explodes it loses some of the conserved mass it holds because the gas escapes from the kernel. We are trying to describe things in the particulate realm, and I am teaching students why it is important to explain these things through chemistry.” 

Junior Taryn Valverde commented, “That popcorn was banging!”
