expressly disclaim all
liability for any occurrence
including, but not limited

death, which might arise
as consequences of the
use of any experiments

supervisor.  Do these
experiments at your own

Supplies: Blindfold, apple slices, orange slices, tuna fish, crackers, and paper towels.

What happens: Dry your friend's tongue and see if they can taste different food items.  Next
hold their nose and see if they can taste flavor without their sense of smell.

Explanation: Your tongue has small bumps on it called Papillae.  These bumps have
microscopic taste buds that sense chemicals.  Tastes include: Sweet, sour, bitter, salty, and
recently added..."umami."  The combination of these determines the overall flavor sent to
your brain.
