About The Event:
How do you make rock candy? What is the science of sugar sculptures? How can knowing materials science make you a better cook? Join the Kitchen Matters team in MIT’s Department of Materials Science & Engineering for a live cookalong to learn more about the science of sugar! All ages welcome.

The program will be a live Zoom session. The first half will be a live cookalong where we’ll make rock candy together. Limited ingredient kits will be available for pickup ahead of time at location(s) in the Cambridge area to be determined. The second half will be a demo of sugar sculpting using isomalt. Delicious science will be presented throughout!

    About the

    Cambridge Science Festival, the first of its kind in the United States, is a madcap celebration of science, technology, engineering, art, and math (STEAM). A multifaceted, multicultural event, the Festival makes science accessible, interactive, and fun, highlighting the impact of STEAM in all our lives.

    For the 2021 Festival, we will host a month-long celebration of STEAM in our community with an overarching theme of gratitude and appreciation. During the month of April 2021, we will showcase creative digital and virtual entries from our rich STEAM community.
