Fun with Food Science: Dairy Discovery Days

July 6, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every day that begins at 10:00 am, repeating until July 10, 2020

This summer, K-State’s Olathe campus is offering a free, week-long, virtual summer camp designed to support STEM-based knowledge in a fun and safe environment. The content is designed for students entering sixth grade and leaving eighth grade.

Fun with Food Science: Dairy Discovery Days | July 13-17

Do you like to cook (and eat)? This camp is for the junior scientist who wants to know the how and why of food. Throughout a week, campers will conduct cool experiments and take virtual tours with professional chefs and our K-State experts.

All experiments can be conducted with ingredients and kitchen equipment you probably already have on hand. Just in case, a list of ingredients will be supplied a week before the camp.

This is a free camp.
