Here's a chance to teach the basics about calories. Learn that a calorie is a measurement of energy - of fuel power. That's why a newspaper has more calories than lettuce. How much energy is in a calorie? Would you believe a single candy bar has enough energy to lift an average size adult over one thousand feet into the air! How do we count calories? Easy, just explode the food and measure the heat it gives off. We show you a bomb calorimeter in action. What do calories have to do with gaining weight? Why learn about calories? Failure to learn the basics of food energy leaves students vulnerable to diet fads and unsound nutritional schemes.
