TALLAHASSEE, FLORIDA – Florida Commissioner of Agriculture Adam H. Putnam has launched an educational video series titled “The Science of Cooking” to engage 5th to 8th grade students in the science in daily activities, such as cooking.

The six videos, which can be viewed below, shift back and forth between a chef cooking kid-friendly recipe’s that feature Florida-grown products and a chemist who describes the science behind cooking.

The science involves basic chemistry concepts that align with the Florida State Standards.

“Just about every activity we do can be broken down into some type of scientific equation, and cooking is no different,” said Commissioner of Agriculture Adam H. Putnam.

“These videos are a fun way to learn about the science of cooking.”
