Today marks the beginning of our first COMBO CAMP: Science and Cooking! Our little chef-scientists joined us in the kitchen for a lesson on baking soda!We prepared an Irish Soda Bread recipe to demonstrate how baking soda reacts with flour and salt. What a DELICIOUS reaction it created!For lunch, our campers paired this hearty bread with a summer-celebration soup. This soup celebrated the ripeness of zucchini, tomatoes, bell peppers, and corn.In the afternoon, our kitchen turned into a "mini" science classroom, exploring the physical composition of popcorn kernels and how they react to heat. Our chef-scientists loved watching, seasoning, and eating a large batch of popcorn made from the stove's conductive heat.
