The library’s “Fizz, Boom, Read!” summer programming for youth kicked off with “Food Scientists,” a two-day program taught by Cornell Cooperative Extension Nutrition Educator Jaime O’Donnell.
The kids learned that celery sitting in a cup of food coloring will draw the color into its stalk and that vinegar and baking soda create a foamy fizz. They also learned why sugar is bad for one’s body and took turns measuring how much sugar is in soda and energy drinks. Ms. Jaime finished up the program by helping the kids make healthy strawberry banana smoothies.
Thank you to Ms. Jaime for kicking off our summer children’s events with such a fun and educational program!
Join us for our first special kids program of the summer! “Food Scientists,” with Cornell Cooperative Extension Nutrition Education Jaime O’Donnell, will be held on Tues., June 24 and Thurs. June 26 from 4:00-5:00PM each day.
Kids will find out the answers to such questions as, “Why does food steam and sizzle when it cooks?” and “Why does soda have bubbles in it?”
Be sure to register today for this fun and exciting program suitable for kids of all ages! Friday, June 20 is the last day to register. For more information, please contact Youth Services Coordinator Jaclyn Bruntfield at jbruntfield @ hudsonarealibrary.org
