Description

STEM Cooking Classes with Little Chefs Lab

Presented by The Trustees

The KITCHEN is partnering with Little Chefs Lab to bring a special cooking class that introduces kids to basic cooking techniques while weaving in different lessons in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM).

Student ages 7-10 will explore scientific concepts, learn cooking techniques and have fun turning science into delicious treats. This week children will get a solid understanding of phase conversions: solid, liquid and gas, while making magic happen in the kitchen. Kids will love getting their hands dirty and learning science, technology, engineering and math.

Please note: This is a DROP-OFF class. Parents will be required to fill out a form prior to leaving. Please arrive 10 minutes early to provide time to fill out this form. Classes are limited to 16 participants and will sell out quickly. Please book tickets early.

In this class, the little chefs will learn about how liquid eggs can be transformed into soft frittatas. (Bonus: they will learn how to crack an egg, the right way!)

Wednesday, February 20: Dairy

Say cheese! During this class, the kids will make their own ricotta cheese and learn about the science behind it. Students will then learn how to prepare hors d'oeuvres using home-made ricotta cheese. You will be amazed by their creativity!

Students will learn about different phases of sugar and their effect on buttercream. They will then vote for the best buttercream and learn how to decorate cupcakes using their favorite buttercream!
