Burning Calories (SBD-5225-KIT)

Price:   $86.00   
Have you ever wondered how nutritionists know how many Calories a certain food contains? With this kit you will learn a method for measuring how much chemical energy is available in different types of food. Following the procedures in Science Buddies "Burning Caloriesproject, you will build your own calorimeter to capture the energy released by burning a small food item, like a nut or a piece of popcorn. This project gives a new meaning to the phrase "burning calories."

Kits contain tested materials to ensure that you have what you need to successfully complete your science project, have fun, and learn some science along the way!
