Taste Buds
Locate the taste buds on your tongue


All healthy people are able to identify different tastes by placing a substance in their mouth. Obviously there are sensory organs in our mouth that are able to handle complex task of tasting. We call these sensory organs "Taste Buds". The ability to taste is our first defense that protects us from eating harmful substances. Because of the importance of the taste buds we must first know where are they located and how to protect them.

 Project description:
In this project you will identify the location of taste buds. This by itself is the first step toward protecting the taste organs. When we know where are the taste buds we will protect them against burning, injury or damage by strong chemicals. Materials you need for your experiments are often found at home or may be purchased locally.
