Abstract
My hypothesis is that if I add different amounts of sugar to the same amount of boiling water and allow it to be cooled, than the one with the additional cup of sugar will be the one that grows more crystals. I determined that my hypothesis was correct. The glass I chose to add the pure cane sugar did grow much more crystals at a more rapid pace. The purpose of my experiment is to grow a large amount of crystals on a wooden skewer. Rock candy is a candy made with sugar that I chose to attempt to grow on a wooden skewer. This delicious candy is actually crystallized sugar that I grew from a sugar-water solution. In this science fair project I have learn how to grow my own rock candy and determine if you use different types of sugar, it will change the growth rate of your sugar crystals. When I added the extra cup of sugar to observation 2, it grew approximately 8 cm more than observation 1 over a period of 5 days.

Introduction
My hypothesis is: If I add more sugar to the same amount of boiling water, it will grow more crystals. I believe the more sugar you add to the water the thick and more concentrated the water will be. There will be more sugar to come out of the solution when it is sitting for a period of time. I chose this project because edible sugar crystals sounded like a good idea to create and try. I saw this idea from Science Bob website and thought it was interesting. The purpose is to see if more sugar causes more crystals. My objective is to grow a large number of sugar crystals on a wooden skewer. Rock candy is a candy made with...
