Alice in Wonderland, or Why Things Smell and Taste Differently on the Other Side of the Looking Glass
Scientific Disciplines — Chemistry and Biology
We’ll investigate the sense of smell and taste and see how the chemist is able to take really vile smelling chemicals and create wonderful fruity smelling materials from them. Make and smell the essence of apples, oranges, bananas, pears and other fruits and flowers in this fascinating and fun program. Learn about the “handedness” of certain flavoring agents and observe how molecules that are mirror images of one another may have entirely different odors. Make your very own perfume (or aftershave). Your mother likes some foods and your father and you can't stand their taste. Find out why.
