Science Meets the Stove: The Chemistry of Food and Cooking at TLU’s Chemistry CHAOS Night

TLU’s Chemistry CHAOS Night: A Delicious Blend of Science Returning Tonight

The annual Chemistry CHAOS Night at Texas Lutheran University is back and promises a night of fun and adventure. This year, the event, which stands for Chemistry Happens with Adventurous Outstanding Scientists, is all about exploring the wonders of chemistry in exciting new ways.

The theme for this year’s event is The Chemistry of Food and Cooking, with activities designed to engage participants of all ages. Kids will have the chance to learn about the science behind everyday foods through hands-on experiments that may not be safe to try at home. Dr. Alison Bray, professor and chair of the chemistry department at TLU, emphasizes the importance of understanding the processes that occur in the world of food and cooking.

Attendees can expect to participate in a variety of activities, including making biopolymers in the form of rice paper sushi wraps, conducting candy chromatography, and tasting liquid nitrogen ice cream. The event is open to kids from kindergarten through high school, as well as those young at heart who are interested in learning more about the science of food and cooking.

Chemistry CHAOS will take place from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Jackson Park’s Student Activities Center today. The event, hosted by TLU’s Pi Rho Chemistry Club, is free for the public to attend. Come join the fun and explore the exciting world of food and cooking science!
