Additional information

Participants will explore the science, technology, engineering, art and math of cooking. Ingredients and supplies are provided. Participants will experiment with the properties of baking ingredients to figure out how cookies are made, scientifically produce the perfect soft boiled egg, and use natural fermentation to make bread and churn butter.  These are just some of the experiences middle schoolers will enjoy in this fun filled (and tasty) week.

This program runs Monday through Friday, including President's Day on Feb 19.


Program continues to run during February vacation.
