ACADEMICS: Nutrition Class Conducts Calorimetry Lab

Recently, Mrs. Strickland's Nutritional Health class learned about calories as a measure of the energy in the food we eat. The class took part in a calorimetry lab to determine how many calories were in two different types of potato chips and a marshmallow. The students lit the food on fire then measured the change in water temperature to determine how much heat energy was released by the food.
