What’s on Your Plate? Exploring Food Science is a comprehensive curriculum set with hands-on experiments—some of which learners can eat as they discover the science behind food preparation. Youth learn the building blocks of food science using chemistry, biology, and physics in a “kitchen laboratory” setting. Learn why and how things happen in breads, muffins, eggs, fruit, vegetables, cheese, candy, and beverages. Conduct food experiments, collect and analyze data, practice sensory science (tasting), and investigate career opportunities. Each unit contains three activities for beginner through advanced learners.
This set includes four Youth Science Journals and four Facilitator Guides complete with step-by-step instructions, pictures and explanations. Short online tutorial videos provide science explanations and demonstrations for doing the activities. Both the Facilitator Guides and Youth Science Journals are necessary for completing the activities.
