Food Science

Last week 4th and 5th class were invited to Le Chéile during science week to see different types of science experiments with food. It was really interesting and we learned how changing food into different states (from a solid to a liquid and back to a solid) can create different delicious food. We turned strawberries into jelly spaghetti, made vanilla ice cream (the best ice cream they ever tasted) and made fruit caviar. We also did an experiment where we had to rely on our sense of taste alone to identify different flavour skittles. Ms O’ Dowd and Ms Cullen were roped into demonstrating the taste test. We had great fun.
