Squishy, Gooey, Stretchy: The Science of Making Pizza: A Holiday Lecture for Children and Their Parents

Saturday, December 15, 2007 - 03:00 to 17:00
Join us at the 2007 Harvard Holiday Science Lecture as we observe, touch, taste, and explore some of your favorite foods. Kids, families, students, teachers and the curious are welcome! You'll discover the physics, chemistry and biology of cheese and bread, look at them under a microscope, taste the cheese we make (yum!), and learn about digestion (yuck!). Using live experiments and interactive demonstrations with children from the audience, we will investigate the wonders of pizza. Come and be a scientist with us! This interactive presentation, given by Amy Rowat, Daniel Rosenberg and Howard Stone, is based on a famous set of lectures first given to children a century ago by the great scientist Michael Faraday. Recommended for ages 7 and up.
