Steven Universe: The Movie is now available to own on Digital, Blu-ray & DVD.
This is totally something my daughter gets into. She loves Steven Universe! She also loves awesome, fun science projects and this one is easy, though it takes some patience….
Save the Earth and bring peace to your galaxy with Steven Universe’s “Crystal Gem” Candy recipe
This is a project that involves hot water so make sure you have an adult involved (Camp Director).
The Science Behind The Fun:
As time passes (and the solution cools), the water will slowly evaporate from the solution. As the water evaporates, the solution will become more saturated with sugar. The sugar molecules will collect on the string, and the candy crystals will grow molecule by molecule!
Extra Science Fun:
Try making two jars of candy. In the first jar – seed your “Crystal Gem” Candy by rolling your string in water and sugar. In the second jar do not seed your string with sugar before growing. Determine if using seed sugar crystals changes the growth rate of your “Crystal Gem” Candy!
We are heading out for four days so we are just going to leave our crystal candy gems right here and can’t wait to see how they’ve grown when we get back…. What about yours?
