Cooked: Science in the Kitchen

It’s easy to overlook the miraculous transformations that happen to food in our “home laboratories” – our kitchens. In this show, we explore a host of tasty questions: What changes when you fry an egg, boil a potato, or sear a steak? How are mayonnaise and whipped cream alike? Why doesn’t honey spoil, and how can you keep other foods safe? Why do ham and bacon look different from pork? Why are pretzels brown?

Making Science Exciting for 46 Years!

Friday evenings are for family fun with these interactive performances that connect science with your everyday life. The UWM Science Bag educates as it entertains. Each one-hour show is free and designed for the curious, ages 8 to 108. Topics change monthly. 2017 marks our 45th year of providing free, family-friendly science education to the Greater Milwaukee community.

Presentations are held in Room 137 of the Physics Building, at the corner of E. Kenwood Blvd. and N. Cramer St., UWM Campus.
