HAFTR’s third grade scientists learned about the five taste areas of the tongue and did a taste test with citric acid and dextrose mixed with water — creating their own flavored beverage.
Students determined the amount of citric acid and dextrose they wanted to add to water as their ingredients to make their drink either sour or sweet. They designed a label for their bottles and named their individual drinks. Some even added a kosher symbol to their label. Students loved learning about chemical engineering and creating their own drinks.
