Circuits: Food Pantry Edition

STEAM is an acronym for the fields of study in the categories of science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics.

At the Cade Museum for Creativity + Invention, ALL of our classes and programming are developed with STEAM in mind.  It is the scaffolding upon which we created the Cade Way of teaching, underscoring that learning happens best when disciplines intersect. Each class is labeled with a STEAM descriptor.  The emphasis for the class is capitalized within this descriptor.

ExampleStEaM denotes that the class’s emphasis is strongest in ScienceEngineering and Math . Whereas, SteAm is strongest in Science and Art.

What will be taught?  

  • Chemistry
  • Technology
  • Physics

Did you know that many of the food products we use every day are capable of producing conductivity?

This lab will teach students that ketchup circuits, butter buzzers and marshmallow fluff towers can easily be used to turn a light on.

Join us for a food-filled afternoon and discover what food pantry items can be used to produce electrical circuits. Let’s see what works and well, what doesn’t! After all, this is the Creativity Lab and anything is possible when students tapped into their creative potential.

*This lab relies heavily on food products to complete experiments, so please remember to note any food allergies on your order when registering for this lab.
