Friday, August 13, 2021

A new class at North Platte Community College will allow youth ages 8-12 to explore basic chemistry, physics and biology using common items found in the kitchen. 

Crazy Kitchen Science is scheduled for 4:30-6 p.m. Sept. 14 and Sept. 21. The sessions are independent of one another. Students can attend one or both. 

From the cleaning power of taco sauce to extracting DNA from a strawberry, the action-packed workshops will be fun and engaging – encouraging youth to think like a scientist.

Both classes will be in Room 206 of the W.W. Wood Building on the NPCC North Campus, 1101 Halligan Drive, North Platte, NE 69101.

Kate Marshall, associate extension educator for the University of Nebraska – Lincoln, will be the instructor. The fee is $10 per class.
