Fun & Games...

Teaching Science can be so much fun...

I was reacquainting myself with this experiment after school today prior to demonstrating it to the students as a special Christmas treat. Despite having done the experiment several times, I have never managed to make the jelly baby scream...


...and yes, that was my evil laugh before dropping the jelly baby into molten potassium chlorate!

Jelly baby scream? I don't understand. Is this a reaction between the sugar and the potassium chlorate?

That's just cruel - the NSPJB* will be after you, and you'll deserve it !

What is it with you and jelly babies?. I love the little monsters, could eat them till the cows come home. You on the other hand have some dark secret which you are not prepared to share with us. Did you overdose on them as a child and are now getting your revenge? The plot thickens.
