Food Science

July 11-15, 2022 | 9 am-3 pm

So many exciting chemical reactions can happen with ingredients we find in our kitchen cabinets! We will investigate the dyes in candy, the DNA in strawberries, interactions with milk and food dye, lava lamps with oil and water, and the oxidation of fruits. We will document our findings in a lab journal and even do some research of our own on current topics in food science! Our time together will be filled with dynamic discussions and fascinating kitchen experiments!
