“The school theme for National Science Week 2021 is Food: Different by Design. It honors the United Nations International Year of Fruits and Vegetables and the International Year of Creative Economy for Sustainable Development.” – National Science Week
It’s National Science Week and the focus is on food! I couldn’t be happier as this is a personal passion and love. I have created a series of ‘foodie’ experiments, some of which are even edible.
I encouraged students to discuss the experiments with their family as some require help in the kitchen. Parents might not want their children to complete the experiments or may not be able to access the ingredients required. Hence, it’s a good idea to make this task optional as students might like to do one activity, all of them or maybe none!

For you copy of the Science Week Experiments Pack, download below. Each experiment contains the required ingredients and utensils, method, an explanation of the science and some ideas for going further. The pack includes a pdf of each of the below food science experiments:
- Fizzing Lemon
- Homemade Honeycomb
- Edible Sugar Glass
- Curds & Whey
- It’s ‘Snot’ Funny
- Lava Lamp
Thank you so much for reading this post. If you decide to use this in your classroom, please feel free to come back and leave some feedback, share your ideas or the science experiments completed by your students.
