Chemistry in the Kitchen (Daisies-Juniors)

In this exciting, new program, girls of all ages can learn more about how cooking and baking are based on some of the most basic ideas of science. Girls will determine the differences in chemical and physical reactions as they change sugar to delicious caramel candy, bake cupcakes, or even make a soda explosion! Older girls will experiment with chromatography and find out about the make-up of some of their favorite candy, while younger girls will learn about density as they create their own liquid totem. Each girl will leave this event with a book full of fun chemistry experiments to do both in the kitchen and all around the house with friends or family members.

Consider everyone a suspect and ask your questions thoroughly. You will get your characters the night of the event and have time to prepare for your role in this interactive game that doesn’t end until the mystery is solved. Come dressed up in your fanciest dance dress! Light refreshments will be served. Registration is required, no walk-ins.
