our two video series engage students through high-quality science instruction and invite playful experimentation with food and cooking

the science behind


A fun and informative 8-10 minute video where we explore & experiment with a food & explain its connection to traditional science concepts.

how to

2 minute video demonstrating a step-by-step simplified recipe or lab aligned with the Science Behind video.

supplementary resources

Supplementary resources include a teacher lesson plan with lab, a teacher lesson plan without a lab, ready-to-use classroom slides, lab protocol with preparation and reflection questions, a video handout, deep dive worksheets, and answer keys. These resources are primarily intended for an educational setting.


A 4-5 minute video that walks through an activity/recipe, briefly explains the science behind it, & provides tinkering ideas.

supplementary resources

The supplementary resources Include lesson plans and printable student worksheets. These resources are written for anyone looking for hands-on activities (afterschool programs, clubs, electives, & at-home).​

why videos?

We prioritze using videos for all of our lessons. Here's why.


Key points and processes in labs/recipes are often best explained through visuals- for both students & educators.


Engage learners through captivating visuals, helpful graphics, and a conversational tone.


Use of video and audio in addition to text makes labs and science content more accessible.


Less time spent understanding directions means more time for play and tinkering.

layers of complexity

We design our videos and activities to align with maker-based principles established by Seymour Papert, Mitchel Resnick, and Brian Silverman. In particular, we aim for our activities to have "low floors", "high ceilings" and "wide walls".


what does this mean?

  1. We make our recipes highly accessible by starting with a highly guided, basic template, recipe, or activity.

  2. We then provide a variety of suggestions and ideas for tinkering & extensions.
