Practical Engineering Challenge with Apples

Apples are a wonderful snack, but when teeth are coming and going like my children's are, they need to be sliced. Then the apples turn brown. Fast food restaurants solve this problem by adding an acid, but that makes the apple sour. Here's an engineering challenge that would be a great topic for a science fair, or just to solve a problem many families face. Make an artificial skin that will keep the inside of the apple from oxidizing.
Apple Science Project - This is such a fun, practical engineering challenge for kids using apples. This science project is perfect for fall for prek, kindergarten, first grade, 2nd grade, 3rd grade, 4th grade, 5th grade students in the classroom, science fair project, homeschool, or as a fun weekend project.
