Edible Experiments and
Other Mad Scientist Recipes

“Who—me Teach science You must be joking! I barely passed science
when I was in school. I’m certainly not
qualified to teach it now!” The prospect
of teaching science brings to mind names
such as Einstein, Newton, and Bernoulli,
along with the complex equations and
scientific theories they espouse. Thus,
it is easy for a homeschool parent with
no science degree to view science as a
daunting challenge and to shy away from
teaching science. It's easy to become even
more discouraged by the price tags found
on numerous materials required for sci-
ence experiments, especially if you have
a limited budget.
