The earth is getting warmer. Tropical Glaciers are melting. Species are migrating. The oceans are getting more acidic. But why isn't anyone doing anything about it? What should we do about it? We'll use fun demonstrations and examples to explain the facts behind global warming, debate the controversy and discuss what our next steps as a global society should be.

S1060: Savory, Sweet, Heat! The science of food. in Splash! Fall 2010 (Nov. 13 - 14, 2010)
Ever wonder what happens when an egg cooks or soda fizzes? Or why those salty tortilla chips go so well with sweet chunky salsas? In a brief two hours we'll survey all things science about all things food, incorporating a mix of lecture, demonstration and hands on experiments (cooking!). We'll cover bits of neuroscience, chemistry and physics when explaining how different foods combine to become a succulent meal and in the end, everyone will end up full, and a certified molecular gastronomist.
