Did you know that your kitchen is actually a secret laboratory where tons of crazy-cool science goes down every day? Or that your fridge is jam-packed with chemistry materials? Join the world-famous Exploratorium for 30+ delicious discoveries, including the science of food, cooking, baking, nutrition, and taste. The Exploratorium s ExploringKitchen Scienceis your hands-on guide to exploring all the tasty chemistry that goes on all around you from burning a peanut to understand how calories work to making blinking rock candies with LEDs inside, from cooking up oobleck as a wild and wacky lesson in matter to making ice cream with dry ice! Watch Mentos and Diet Coke explode, Styrofoam shrink in a pressure cooker, and marshmallows duke it out. Make dyes from onionskins, tangy and yeasty sourdough bread, noodles of fruit, pickles a power source, and glow-in-the-dark Jello. Use cabbage juice as a pH indicator and salt and olive oil as a lava lamp. Whip up tasty treats while you explore all the unexpected science that s going on inside your very own kitchen. Cook, mix and microwave your way through Exploring Kitchen Science and learn some cool stuff along the way.
