Cordula will show you how to use household materials to explore the wonderful world of chemistry in the kitchen: how do you make rainbow noodles for dinner? What’s happening when you bake a cake? How can you set up your own lab at home and experiment with kitchen materials? And lots more!
What you will need:
- Red cabbage juice (PARENTS: boil half a head of red cabbage in 2L water the day before. Remove the cabbage leaves once the now purple liquid has cooled down. Store the purple-red cabbage juice in the fridge)
- Access to water
- Baking soda
- Three or more transparent glasses or cups
- Rubber gloves
- A tray or similar to cover the surface of the kitchen table
Booking: No Booking needed!
