Crazy For Kitchen Chemistry

  • Time of Day

    Morning Class (9:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. CST)

Do you wonder why bread turns brown when heated in a toaster, why raw “egg whites” are clear but turn solid white when cooked, or why gluten-free foods can be so hard to make?  In this class we will use everyday phenomena – mostly centered in the kitchen – to illustrate important chemical principles.  This hands-on class will explore problems of the modern world and how they are solved, or made worse, using chemistry and technology.  Students will apply the scientific method as they explore the periodic table and the elements, chemical reactions, solubility, endothermic and exothermic reactions, and other topics through many experiments.This class is all about discovery, observation, and fun with science!
