With science experiments you can really eat--grouped into chapters focused on science, technology, engineering, art, and math--children learn investigative skills, the scientific method, and kitchen safety while creating treats for their friends and families. I particularly love the treatment of the kitchen as a laboratory and the 'hypothesis, observations, and results' approach to data collection for each experiment/recipe. Dr. Hall has created a wonderful treat for children and parents alike!"--Katherine Bassett, CEO, Tall Poppy, LLC
