Candle workshop

This candle workshop is packed full of practical science. We investigate why they candles burn and different energy sources. Every child makes a candle to take home.

The candle workshop introduces Heat, Light and Chemical Energy. We learn about hydrogen, oxygen and carbon. Lets look at what respiration and candles have in common. What are high energy materials? Why do we need to make candles out of high energy materials? Did you know that candles can be a food source?
