The Science of Baking!-Grades 2-5
In this hands-on class, we'll have fun in the kitchen learning about the amazing scientific things that happen when you bake! We'll learn about the Maillard Reaction, caramelization, and the elements that make baked goods rise in the oven all while baking delicious treats to enjoy! We'll make cookies, cupcakes, cinnamon rolls, and meringue as we explore finding science in our very own kitchens.
