The human body does not produce vitamin C, nor can it store vitamin C. Because of this we need a continuous supply of the vitamin in our diets. This science fair project, created by John Wiley & Sons, Inc. and featured at, explores various fruit juices to determine which you should drink to get the most vitamin C. Great for elementary students, we do suggest completing this project with an adult since it involves use of the stove. For a full write-up of the project - a list of materials, step-by-step procedure, project suggestions, tips & tricks for completing the experiment, etc. - be sure to visit! And, while you're there, be sure to hang around. If this project doesn't pique your interest, they have tons of other ideas for you to check out!
