Mark your calendar for Thursday, Oct. 16 from 1:00 – 2:00 p.m. CT and then follow along as food science professor Rich Hartel discusses “Sweet science: Having fun with candy chemistry” during a live webinar hosted by the American Chemical Society.

And don’t forget to bring your bag of treats.

“I’ve been doing a talk on candy for many years. It’s a mixture of candy science, some fun facts about candy and even a quiz. It’s done interactively, meaning I hand out a candy bag to attendees, and as I talk they investigate and eat each candy in order as I discuss the science,” says Hartel.

To keep the free, online webinar as interactive as possible, he explains, “we’re asking attendees to arrange to bring their own candies.”
