Instructor:  Margaret Liberti-Wiegert

Margaret Liberti grew up in the kitchen with her Papa (Dad), and in his pizzeria!  Food has always been her passion, and as she went through school, science became an additional passion. Margaret has been a biology/chemistry teacher and taught at a local SUNY for over a decade. Teaching science has always been Margaret’s professional passion, while cooking has been her personal passion. She now can share her two passions- and The Science Chef was born!

The Science Chef Workshops
The Science Chef is glad to bring two fun concepts together: science and food!  For children, we are bringing a love for science and food together with fun, hands-on activities that bring each themed class together for an engaging (and tasty)! lesson in STEM.

Grades K-5

Rockets
Learn the basic structure of a rocket and how to launch a real rocket!  We will launch a rocket on site (weather and space permitting).  Customize your own “rocket pop” cake push pop!

Flying Physics
What makes a loop go around?  How can centripetal force keep water in place while flying?  Experiment with physical forces and try your hand at a Pringle Ringle!

Lava, Volcanoes and the Rock Cycle
Learn how our senses work together to contribute to taste sensations!  Students will learn about the anatomy of our sense organs, participate in blind taste tests and concoct a food that looks awful but tastes amazing!

Glowing Science
Learn about fluorescence and what glows.  Watch as three chemicals combine into a “chemical flashlight”.  Experiment with a black light reader and make glowing Jello to take home.
