Investigating Food with Science

Every Wednesday, April 7, 2021 - June 30, 2021
4 - 4:30 p.m. EST

"Investigating Food with Science: The Science Behind Food Safety" an after-school program exploring how cooking is an experiment and baking is a science. Each week MSU Extension educators will explore the science behind food-related topics and food safety along with a fun, kid-friendly recipe or experiment demonstration. The demonstrations will be designed for youth to experiment at home if they desire, and provide the youth a chance to share their experience the following week. 

Join us online via Zoom using your laptop, tablet, smartphone, or any device with internet access.
