Come join us for our Presidents Day Expedition to General Mills! Your scientists will have the chance to get a VIP behind-the-scenes tour of General Mills to see first hand the science that goes into creating the products we know and love. In addition to a tour of the factory where some of their food products are created and manufactured, your students will learn how to measure the “slipperyness” of packaging, calibrate the ideal pH of yogurt, and why magnetism plays a vital role in food production. This is going to be a unique experience and we hope you will be able to join us!
