From Food to Burn to Calories: AP Bio Burn Lab

Students in Susan Kelly’s AP Biology class are learning about burning food to determine the number of calories in that item of food. Learn more about our Science academic offerings.

From Jessica Honz, senior

“Today we burned Cheetos and marshmallows, yesterday we burned cashews, and we’re burning them to see how much they heat up water. And then using that, we put it into an equation, and it can help us calculate approximately how many calories are in the food that we’re burning.”
