The Matter program will immerse students in the exciting world of cooking through recipes and tools used in science. Students will learn about the phases of matter used in cooking, and the changes that come with it. We’ll look at the characteristics of different foods and materials found in our kitchens. Of course, great cooking demonstrations will be available for students to see the science that happens outside the classroom. From melting chocolate to making butter, the program will help the students visualize the science around them. We’ll also discuss the use of conduction, convection, and radiation cooking, along with the effects of temperature on matter. Through activities that will explain atoms, electrons, and protons, students will also gain an understanding of the chemical and physical components of the world. This program is a combination of lessons, visuals, demonstrations videos, and recipes that students can choose to make at home. These fun programs help students understand what it is like to work with food and connect the skills they learn in the classroom.
