Want to understand atoms and molecules? There’s no better way than to make Atomic Popcorn Balls. Follow the recipe and arrange the “atoms” into “molecules” using toothpicks. Once you’ve got the hang of it, you can create all the elements of the periodic table (if you don’t eat all the atoms first!). Studying black holes? Grab some friends, pour some milk, and talk gravity and supernovas over some tasty Black Hole Swallow-Ups. Black holes are a complicated concept, so if you need to do this experiment twice, no one will complain.

Simple recipes that yield delicious surprises, science samplers that further explain the scientific principle being explored, and a glossary of terms make Eat Your Science Homework a must for all kitchen labs.
