Activity Fridays – Science of Baking

Science surrounds us everywhere, even in the food we eat! 

On Friday July 25, 2014, students participated in a cupcake activity. Students learned the process of baking, applied what they learned in their math class (ratios, proportions, fractions etc.), decorate their cupcake, and finally get to eat their masterpiece! The goal of this activity is not only to teach the science of baking but to open the student’s mind and guide them be as creative as possible.

The students had a great time making cupcakes and had a delicious snack afterwards! Take a look of our photos below!
