Session 5 PM: Kitchen Chemistry
Session 5 PM: July 22 - August 2
Age / grade level: K-1st
Teacher: Mrs, Kaitlin Redborg, B.A., M.F.A.
Additional fee: $25
Description: Explore the science of cooking and the chemical reactions that make ingredients into food. We will perform experiments with common household items to reveal the chemical processes at work in the kitchen and find out why different techniques yield different results. Each day your child will get to independently make their own edible art snack, and we will read a story with a food or cooking related theme that will inspire what we make that day. Children will work in small groups to learn to cook something new from a list of ingredients. They will use math, critical thinking and basic recipe reading skills to prepare delicious foods. They will also explore ways to make those foods more nutritious by learning about the science of nutrition and using better ingredients. Thanks to the Snow family we will get to use organic and locally grown vegetables from Snow’s Bend Farm! Your child will most importantly learn all about kitchen and food handling safety allowing them to become more confident and independent!
