Ayla’s Science Fair Project: Get the Sensation

19 Nov

Purpose:  The problem is figuring out if the menthol in a mint leaf actually cools down the temperature in your mouth, or if your mouth is playing tricks on you.  When you put a mint in your mouth and drink water, your mouth feels really cool.  The purpose of this experiment is to achieve a goal of figuring out if mint actually cools down your mouth or if it is just a “cooling sensation.”

Cupcake elected herself Supervisor of the Science Fair Project.  I can’t tell you how many times during this process I heard Ayla yell, “Cupcake!!”

    Mint does not actually lower the temperature in your mouth.
