November 20 & 21- Kitchen Chemistry

Start your Thanksgiving break with some science you can eat! We will look at differences between physical and chemical changes, take part in an engineering challenge, and learn how our body breaks down that big Thanksgiving meal, all with ingredients commonly found in the kitchen. Edible experiments will include learning how to add a secret message on top of that sweet potato casserole and make a fruit salad that fizzes as you eat it. We will also answer the question, “why does turkey make me sleepy?”

Start your Thanksgiving break with a BANG! You hear it all the time, “Don’t try this at home!” Well why not try it at the Science Spectrum? This camp is filled with dos as well as don’ts at home. We will explore chemical and physical changes with fire and liquid nitrogen, have fun with physics and electricity, and maybe cause an explosion or two!
