Join us in this series of fun food play where we will explore the science of food. This hands-on STEM program will introduce the science of food using concepts on food quality and food manufacturing and their use to improve sustainability, extend shelf-life and reduce waste. You'll be introduced to the big ideas of food science while learning about different employment opportunities in the field. Each program is a 2-hour session that includes a safe to use science kit that is uniquely designed to be easy to clean, portable, and low cost that provides 3 hands-on engagement activities.
