Family Reading and Science Workshop: Everybody Cooks

Sunday, February 10, 2013
12:00 AM
Museum of Natural History

Pre-register at (734) 764-0480. This free hour-long, family workshop for children ages 6-11 accompanied by an adult is part of the U-M Museum of Natural History’s Family Reading and Science Program.  This year’s theme is Just Like Me?: Exploring culture, biology and the human experience. Every country has a cuisine but why do the same ingredients or types of food pop up all over the world? Families will learn how geology relates to food, what "cultural transmission" is, and they will also get to make their very own bread starter. The workshop series continues in March.  For a complete schedule, including workshop dates and times at 42 library locations in Southeastern Michigan, visit our website ummnh.org or bit.ly/frs2013.  For more information, contact program manager Amanda Paige at apaige@umich.edu.
