Science of the Cookie

What pairs well with cookies? Science!

We are teaming up with the Girl Scouts of Southeastern Michigan to explore the science behind baking cookies!

Join us for demonstrations and cookie-related activities each weekend from now through April 9.

Demonstrations include “Cookie Nightmares,” a guessing game using “cookie fails,” to learn about the importance of each ingredient in a classic chocolate chip cookie, and “Cookie Excavation” where you can try out your archaeological skills and practice using tools while carefully excavating chocolate chips from a cookie and map their location on a grid.

Stock up on your favorite Girl Scout Cookies at the Mi-Sci lobby each weekend through April 9.

Vote for Your Favorite Girl Scout Cookie!

Vote now for your favorite Girl Scout cookie flavor! You can vote every day in March for the cookie flavor that has your heart.
