"Investigating Food with Science: The Science Behind Food Safety" an after school program exploring how cooking is an experiment and baking is a science. Each week MSU Extension educators will explore the science behind food-related topics and food safety along with a fun, kid-friendly recipe or experiment demonstration. The demonstrations will be designed for youth to experiment at home if they desire, and provide the youth a chance to share their experience the following week.
