The Highlights

Three science-packed ways you can use up all those candy corns in your kitchen:

  1. Launch a candy corn – Make a simple catapult using a clothes pin, a spoon, and some tape, and then use it to launch candy corns.
  2. Dissolve a candy corn – Try dissolving candy corns in oil, cold or warm water, or clear soda to see what happens.
  3. Make a candy corn structure – Use toothpicks and candy corns to make a castle of your own design.
