Register for the Mad Scientist in the Kitchen Day Camp

May 8, 2013

Youth completing fourth through sixth grade are invited to participate in the Mad Scientist in the Kitchen Day Camp from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. June 21 at the Quakerdale in New Providence.

Participants will test foods for vitamin C, protein and starch; extract DNA from a banana and make a delicious smoothie; make their own enchilada and tortilla lunch; get moving with fun games; and tour Quakerdale's aquaponics garden and outdoor garden to learn about the science and business of gardening.

This experience is part of Iowa State University Extension and Outreach Region 8 4-H Youth Development programming funded in part by PEERS (Partnership for Engineering Educational Resources for Schools) through the governor's STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) Scale Up Initiative.

Pre-registration and $25 fee payment are required by June 7. Registration information is available at Questions may be directed to Elise Fiscus, ISU Extension and Outreach AmeriCorps member, at 641-752-1551.
