Have you ever done science experiments that you can eat? Explore the scientific world as we use food to experiment with chemistry, physics, and earth science. Get your hands dirty as we make Oobleck and edible slime. Learn about the solar system with Oreos and marshmallows. Create art using candy and other edible items. This is a delicious and fun way to learn about science!
