Conversations about Science Communication and Communicating Science


Episode 25 : “Kitchen Science Lab” Edition, with Liz Heinecke (audio)

Posted by jnshaumeyer on 27 September 2014

Streamed live 25 September 2014.

For this episode, we not only Read Science, we Make Science! Our guest was Liz Heinecke, the Kitchen Pantry Scientist and author of Kitchen Science Lab for Kids. We talked about engaging kids and their parents with science through hands-on science fun in the kitchen–and outdoors, for the messier experiments.

In a “Read Science!” first, we had several live demonstrations from Liz’s book, in Liz’s kitchen, with two cameo appearances by Liz’s daughters to demonstrate the fun. We made green slime, litmus paper with beet juice, and demonstrated the effects of air pressure with a hard-cooked egg. Join us for the fun!
