Kitchen Chemistry FAQ's

Q: Is the pre-mission lesson plan necessary for the Kitchen Chemistry e-Lab?


 A: It is recommended that you conduct the pre-mission lesson plans so that students receive the most they can out of the e-lab, building upon their prior knowledge of Chemistry in the kitchen.  


Q: Do all students require the printable materials for the Kitchen Chemistry e-Lab?


A: Yes. All students will need 3 copies of the lab journal for the actual e-Lab found on the printable materials page.


Q. Other than the printable materials, are there materials that are mandatory for the e-Lab?


A. Yes, for the hands on experiment you will need at a minimum of one large, glass baby food jar per student or up to one large baby food jar per team of two students.  You will also need a container whipping cream and tasting spoons.  You will need about a ½ of the baby food jar filled with whipping cream that has been left out of the refrigerator for 12 hours.  A loaf of bread is also recommended, but not mandatory. If using bread, provide enough for each student to have a portion to go along with their experiment.
