Correction: Chemistry in the Kitchen will be Rescheduled

kitchenChemistryIn this exciting program, girls will learn 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 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 and a fun patch.

Because this is a pre-paid, out of council event, registration is first-come first-served and there are no refunds.

When: To Be Announced
