Who’s ready for incredible edible science and magic with food? Students will dive into food science and use the scientific method to think critically and conduct hands-on experiments, like extracting DNA from a healthy smoothie, and using microwaves and whippers to make novel emulsions and foods. As part of the experiments, young scientists can taste a delicious treat each day and will work in both the classroom and Botany Hall Kitchen.

From protecting eyesight to boosting brain health, learn about the power of variety in our Eat the Rainbow Week from our registered dietitian. In each class, we will be making a color-themed snack, fruit and vegetable art and using our sense of touch to solve fruit and vegetable mysteries! We will introduce basic knife skills and food safety. Half of our class will be spent in the kitchen, the other half will be spent doing physical activity games and exploring the conservatory!

NOTE: Please let us know of any food allergies. All snacks are peanut-free. Some snacks do contain low-fat dairy. Gluten-free alternatives will be available if needed. Adaptive kid friendly knives are available.
