Bread Science School Program

Bread Science

How do we cultivate wheat? What are a scythe, a flail, and a winnowing basket? In two hours, Bread Science will teach your students how wheat is grown and bread is made.

Program Description:

Through storytelling, students discover how wheat is grown and harvested. Then, they learn the steps for baking bread. They grind wheat into flour, knead dough to stretch the gluten chains, and watch how dough changes as it bakes. And of course, there is fresh bread to taste!
