New Topics covered each week throughout the school year.

Well put on your apron or lab coat because it’s time to blend food and science together! In this program we will conduct scientific experiments with food, learn about the tools of cooks and chemists, acquire food preparation techniques, and explore the chemistry that happens in your kitchen every week! Some of the exciting topics include: What is the Maillard Reaction? What causes popcorn to explode? What are ratios and how do they relate to baking?
Note: In some lessons, students will be exposed to, prepare, consume, or take home a variety of food items. We will inform you in advance of food items we will utilize each week. However we are rarely able to make substitutions due to the chemistry focused nature of the lessons. If your student, or household has an allergy or dietary restriction, please let us know in advance.
