The Science Behind Hand-Pulled Noodles

October 25, 2020, 1:00 pm

2:00 pm

In this demo-based science lesson, we use common kitchen items such as flour, oil, water and salt to demonstrate interesting phenomena. We will make dough with various additives (oil, water, salt) and compare their mechanical properties. Depending on the additives, the properties of the dough will be very different. The scientific principles behind these differences will be explained. Participants are encouraged to try our experiments during or after the class. You can be the judge on which dough makes the best hand-pulled noodles!
