It’s Week 2 at Camp Warner Bros.! This week, we are going to have some fun with science, color mixing, learning patience and making a delicious treat for our Steven Universe: The Movie camp viewing party!
Who is to say just because school is out we can’t have some science fun? This rock candy is so easy to do, with the camp directors help of course. It takes some patience, but it’s a great way to learn and have a treat too.
Save the Earth and bring peace to your galaxy with Steven Universe’s “Crystal Gem” Candy recipe here:
The Science Behind The Fun
As time passes (and the solution cools), the water will slowly evaporate from the solution. As the water evaporates, the solution will become more saturated with sugar. The sugar molecules will collect on the string, and the candy crystals will grow molecule by molecule!
Extra Science Fun
Try making two jars of candy. In the first jar – seed your “Crystal Gem” Candy by rolling your string in water and sugar. In the second jar do not seed your string with sugar before growing. Determine if using seed sugar crystals changes the growth rate of your “Crystal Gem” Candy!
