Description:

Learning about food science can be quite fun and engaging. These resources from the folks at the food science department at Pennsylvania State University are designed to be used in a range of classroom settings and are perfect for educators. Currently there are seven activities on the site, including "Catalysis Enzymes in Pineapple," "In a Jam and Out of Juice," and "Practical Fermentation: A Guide for Schools and Colleges." Visitors shouldn't miss the Food Scientists-The Naked Scientist link as it leads to an external site that has wonderful experiments using simple kitchen items to teach interested parties about the chemistry of food science and related topics. Finally, the "Molecular Biology: First Steps - How to Extract DNA in your Kitchen" activity is always a crowd-pleaser.
