Chemistry & The Art of Food

This summer we invite your child to explore Chemistry and The 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 experiences.

Our Summer Program begins June 15th, 2020 and ends August 28th, 2020. In the mornings students will work in the classroom with classical Montessori materials and in the afternoons students will participate in outdoor picnics, playtime, nature walks and sprinkler days.
