For the first time, Cedar Circle Farm is offering a collection of single-session classes for students (ages 6-11 and 12-14) who are interested in exploring farm-based education without committing to an entire series.
Chemistry in the Kitchen: The Biology of Bread
Roll up your sleeves and tie on that apron, because flour is about to fly! Spend an afternoon in the lab–I mean the kitchen, as we explore the science behind the art of bread baking. Our educators will lead students in a bread baking demonstration and discussion of the chemical and biological processes that create those crunchy crusts, scrumptious slices, and tasty toasts. Learn about the science behind the yeast that rise to the occasion every time a baker mixes their dough, the gluten that builds airy loaves, and the sourdough starters that are organisms unto themselves.
This class is best suited for students aged 6-11.
