From Scientific American, The Scientific Secret of Fluffy Pancakes.
I really like this bit of using the scientific method to investigate why it’s always recommended to not mix the pancake better too much. It’s a great way to learn about foods, ingredients, and why we cook things in certain ways.
Where can I find more ideas like this to try? (Preferably with allergy-friendly foods).
Shelburne Farms – A working farm that produces many products (including furniture), strives to be sustainable, and best of all, has an educational mandate.
Shelburne Farms began a rebirth in 1972, when family descendants founded a nonprofit organization of the same name, dedicated to conservation education. For 40 years, the organization has offered educational opportunities for children of all ages to learn about sustainability and their connections to the natural and agricultural world. As stewards of the property, the nonprofit has placed much of the land under conservation easements, and preserved and rehabilitated the buildings to new uses. In 2001 the property became a National Historic Landmark.
