Yesterday the 8th grade class worked with OMSI on a special science lab. They learned to use fire to figure out the number of calories in particular foods. 

By the end of the lab students had learned: 
  • The definition of a calorie
  • What safety equipment is necessary when using fire
  • How to tare a digital scale and how to change modes
  • Worked with a thermometer in Celsius
  • How to use math formulas to decide the temperature differential and calories per item
Ask your student about the process!
