Punk Science

Publication date: August 2011

Here at Punk Science HQ we love doing experiments, but all that experimenting can make you feel quite peckish. Luckily we realized that cooking is actually science…so join us as we show you how to make thirty utterly scrumptious recipes and discover some amazing science facts along the way:

  • Why to onions make us cry?
  • How can eggs stop ice cream from melting?
  • What makes jelly set?
  • Why does cheese smell?

There are sections about the history of food, preserving and packaging, growing food, and vitamins and minerals. And if that wasn't enough we have looked at really healthy ways of preparing the food too.

Yum!

Punk Science are the Science Museum’s very own comedy team. Using experiments, live demonstrations and music they put the fun into the fundamental theories of science. Punk Science are an eclectic mix made up of comedian and journalist Jon Milton, who might well be the only person from Romford to have ever been interested in the general theory of relativity, then there’s all drumming, all American and all round entertainer Brad Gross, and last but by no means least, actor, guitarist and international jet setter Dan Carter-Hope.
