Who are we?
Get to know us and join us!
The Food Lab for Kid aims to engage young students in the sciences through the lens of cooking and to involve them in healthy, nutritious lifestyles.
Harvard undergraduate students serve as teachers for hands-on, lab-based classes on concepts in food science and nutrition. Building off of curriculum from the Harvard Science and Cooking class, we are currently holding weekly classes at the Area IV Youth Center and the Russell Youth Center in Cambridge, Massachusetts. At the end of the program, students are paired off into smaller groups and mentored in developing their own research projects based on the science concepts they have learned and their own curiosity. These projects will be presented at a final presentation event with invited local chefs and sponsorships from local businesses to celebrate the students' work.
