The present work is based on an idea of Ao.Univ.-Prof. Dipl.-Ing. Dr.techn. Gernot Pottla-cher, who will bring these and certainly further exciting experiments within a Christmas lecture to a large audience. The scope of this work does not cover all experiments that are possible with food, but is intended to give a good insight into this topic. In the first part, the motivation for this work is explained and the possibilities offered by experimen-ting with food are discussed. A critical discussion of the subject is also included here. The role of experimentation in general, and especially in the classroom, is discussed in the technical methodology section. These remarks are supplemented by quotations from the curriculum, which are of importance for the topic of this thesis. The main part, however, is the descriptions of about 70 experiments. A list of the materials, a guide for the expe-riments with the possible observations and a representation of the physical background can be found there. The aim of this thesis is to become more aware of the role of the ex-periment in teaching and to give suggestions for experimentation in the classroom.
