Key Stage Three: Champion Chocolate
In this Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC) Seeing Science lesson, students learn how scientists, using experimental evidence have helped Cadbury's improve their chocolate.
Video clips of the cooling stage in chocolate manufacture and research at the Daresbury Laboratory set the scene for experimental work in school using chocolate.
Students are able to measure temperature, draw graphs, describe the change of state taking place and explain how scientific evidence can improve industrial processes.
STFC is a part of the Research Councils UK (RCUK) partnership of research councils.
HEALTH and SAFETY
Any use of a resource that includes a practical activity must include a risk assessment. Please note that collections may contain ARCHIVE resources, which were developed at a much earlier date. Since that time there have been significant changes in the rules and guidance affecting laboratory practical work. Further information is provided in our Health and Safety guidance.
