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.

Slimy Things 
Learn the differences between polymers and cross bridges, and experiment with some slimy kitchen ingredients.  We will end by making taste test safe slime!
Grades 2-6

Glowing Science
Learn about fluorescence and what glows.  Watch as three chemicals can become their own “chemical flashlight”.  Be mystified when you create your own Jell-O shapes that fluoresce under a black light!
Grades 2-6

Chemical and Physical Reactions
A back to basics of the differences between our two favorite types of reactions with easy to understand physical and chemical reactions.  Finish with a color changing chemical reaction drink to take home – mix the two concoctions and create something new (and tasty!)
Grades K-5

Dinosaurs
 Learn all about your favorite dinosaurs including what they eat.  Learn the difference between carnivores, herbivories, and omnivores. Finish with making your own edible dino dig to take home,(chocolate dinosaurs with graham crackers and a paint brush)!
