This summer we invite your child to explore the Chemistry and Art of Food

Is there magic behind the oven door that changes a bowl of batter into a perfect pan cookies? Or is it chemistry which causes reactions to happen!

This summer we will use chemistry to explore food and the art of cooking.

The children will engage in cooking projects to learn why foods react as they do. For example, what is baking soda, and do we need it to make a cake?

We will also use art to document our perfect culinary experience.
