Over the last 2 days, 6 White have been conducting a scientific investigation into factors that help chocolate melt slowly. They did this in response to the challenge from Chapter 3 of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory:
‘Prince Pondicherry wrote a letter to Mr Willy Wonka,’ said Grandpa Joe, ‘and asked him to come all the way to India and build him a colossal palace entirely out of chocolate.’
‘Did Mr Wonka do it, Grandpa?’
‘He did, indeed. And what a palace it was! It had one hundred rooms, and everything was made of either dark or light chocolate! The bricks were chocolate, and the cement holding them together was chocolate, and the windows were chocolate, and all the walls and ceilings were made of chocolate, so were the carpets and the pictures and the furniture and the beds; and when you turned on the taps in the bathroom, hot chocolate came pouring out.
‘When it was all finished, Mr Wonka said to Prince Pondicherry, “I warn you, though, it won’t last very long, so you’d better start eating it right away.”
‘”Nonsense!” shouted the Prince. “I’m not going to eat my palace! I’m not even going to nibble the staircase or lick the walls! I’m going to live in it!”
‘But Mr Wonka was right, of course, because soon after this, there came a very hot day with a boiling sun, and the whole palace began to melt, and then it sank slowly to the ground, and the crazy prince, who was dozing in the living room at the time, woke up to find himself swimming around in a huge brown sticky lake of chocolate.’
Using your investigation, please now redesign Pondicherry’s palace, answering the following questions:
What chocolate should he make it out of?
Where should he build his palace?
What size pieces should he use?
Should he add anything to protect the palace?
EXTRA QUESTION: Does it make sense to have hot chocolate coming out of the taps in the palace? Why?
