[b]Hi,
I am doing the maple syrup with crystals experiment. I have looked all around the internet and have not found a simple explaination on how crystals form. :(
I would appreciate it if you guys took the time to explain how crystals form.


Thanks, Natalie :)

Hi Little Blossom,

Welcome to Science Buddies! This is a really great project and you will learn a lot about chemistry in doing it.

It's very important to understand the scientific basis for your project, so your question is a good one. The explanation of how crystals form is found in the background section of the project description. Please read this and post again if you have questions.

Have you done the experiment yet, and do you have crystals?
