Thanksgiving: Food, Fun & Science!
November 1, 2013

It just wouldn’t be Thanksgiving without some starchy staples—mashed potatoes, baked apples, and homemade bread fresh from the oven. We’ll offer some science that involves these!

Cooking is all about science. This month, as we feature the Quirkles  Kitchen Chemistry Kal, and several activities that center around food, you’ll see there are many easy and fun ways to demonstrate science concepts. Whether it’s testing for starches in Kitchen Chemistry Kal’s Starchy Food Test, extracting casein, a protein found in milk, or even making homemade ice cream, there’s no better or fun way to teach. Sometimes the results can be pretty tasty too!
