The Science of Candle Making
As part of the STEM component as Farmers Market season upon us, students are learning how to make candles. Here we see taper candles being made.
Science is incorporated in the physical and chemical changes that occur with blocks of wax being melted down to a liquid and then back to a solid as it forms layers of wax on the wicks. They are very careful when dealing with the very hot temperatures. The final products will be showcased and sold at the BUGS Farmers Market on Saturday, May 5, 2012. The address is 802 South Caroline street and we hope to see you there!
