What does yeast like to eat? How do they reproduce? How can you know it’s alive? This Fab Lab science project for kids answers all those question AND morphs into a deliciously easy Rosemary Peasant Bread recipe.
This Is A Fab Lab Life Science + Food Science Project
Things You’ll Need
2 Packets of Dry Active Yeast
1 Cup of Water
2 Food Storage Baggies
Measuring Cups + Spoons
Things You’ll Do
Pour 1/2 cup of water into both baggies. Rip open your yeast packets and add one to each plastic baggie. Measure and pour one teaspoon of sugar to ONE of your baggies. Not both. Now, squeeze as much air out of each baggie as humanly possible as you zip them closes. Give them a good shake. Place them in a windowsill and watch what happens.
