Day 2 - A Review...

What a fantastic day we had at the University of Manitoba's Faculty of Agriculture! Thanks, Crystal, for doing a fantastic job of whisking us around the campus so that we could enjoy many exciting activities!

The first half of the day involved obtaining DNA samples and testing them. Bob Adamson did a fantastic job of leading everyone through many fascinating activities. Thanks to Mr. Adamson, you can click here is find some follow-up information related to the activities that you completed this morning.

We spent most of the afternoon in the Food Sciences building, where we had a chance to experiment with baking biscuits, making ice cream and more! Pat and Michael did a wonderful job of helping us to see just how much energy is required to transform simple ingredients into edible delights. I look forward to repeating many of these activities in my own kitchen :-)

I can't wait to work with all of you again later this month to design and build robots! In the meantime, what were your highlights from the 2nd session of Science Camp? Please share your feedback, recipes, etc... in the 'comments' following this post ;-)
