Homemade Rock Candy (Crystal) - Sick Science! #188

Create rock candy at home! "Science is often referred to as the most fun subject in school, but it can be the most delicious subject, too! When you create Homemade Rock Candy, you'll be diving "string-first" into a science experiment and project that easy enough to do right at home! Young scientists will engage with principles like sedimentation and supersaturated solutions. How tasty does that sound?"

As melted rock cools, the heat energy that allows atoms to move past one another decreases, and the natural attraction between atoms causes them to stick together with similar atoms in an orderly crystalline structure (crystal)."
