Key Stage Three: Champion Chocolate

In this activity students learn how scientists, using experimental evidence have helped Cadbury's improve their chocolate. Curriculum links include change of state, crystals, particle theory and temperature. 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.
