4-H Virtual Food Science Club

Are you excited to learn new information about food? This five week virtual 4-H SPIN club has been developed to take complex topics and break them down to introduce students to the wonders of Food Science. We will be meeting each week to explain and experiment with five different food science topics that include; leavening agents, protein in eggs, fermentation in dairy, gluten matrices, and browning in fruits and vegetables. Join University of Maine graduate student Ella Glatter as she delivers online lessons on these food science topics and leads the club in hands-on activities that use techniques used by professional food scientists!
