This theme focuses on the science behind mixing and combining ingredients. Mini chemists mix, measure and experiment using common kitchen ingredients as science tools. They explore states of matter; super-saturation; the chemistry behind fizzy, repellent or delicious combinations; and the molecular change when things are heated and cooled. Equal parts chemistry, recipe experimentation, and fun! (Plus a little snacking – and yes, we can totally accommodate diet restrictions and allergies.)
FAVORITES include Rock Candy Crystallization, Liquid Spherification, Butter Emulsification, Mini Solar Ovens, and, definitely, DIY Ice Cream. (Do *you* know how that salt slush freezes the cream?!)
NEW for 2023! More recipes, more experiments. Oreo Truffles, Edible Ooblek, Fruit Juice Gummies, DIY Pasta, and Color-Changing Slime.
