Gummy bears are delicious, but you will find how dangerous they can be and how much energy they contain by following the experiment shown on this six-minute video. The instructor compares the energy we get from a gummy bear when we eat it to what happens when the gummy bear is combusted in a test tube. Don’t try this at home. Teachers, there are good notes provided that list the materials needed for the experiment, the safety procedures to be followed, and a detailed explanation of the procedure and what occurs in the experiment. Maybe we should just stick to eating the little guys.
