The Science of Chocolate Making

posted May 23, 2011, 10:01 AM by Sophie Jewett
Little Pretty Things are delighted to be working with local organisation NYBEP - the North Yorkshire Business Education Partnership, to support local school children and teachers to understand the application of maths and science in the workplace and business. We will be joining NYBEP at The Yorkshire and Humber Big Bang taking place at York Minster on 14th July 2011. 

At Little Pretty Things we are big lovers of science and maths, it's helped us understand better the processes of chocolate making and it provides a superb learning tool to inspire children to grasp the basic principles and give it a go themselves. We will be running our workshops entitled "The Science of Chocolate Making" with participants and visitors to The Big Bang. Chocolate making is a fine art, mastered by confectioners around the world, but the mystery is all in the temperature and motion applied to generate the formation of crystals. We'll be sharing the secrets to these mysteries and show just how easy it is with some basic equipment you'll find around the house. Participants will then get a chance to practice crystal formation by creating something gorgeous that they can take home and enjoy!

As a NYBEP Ambassador we work with a range of schools across the Yorkshire region. Our Science of Chocolate Making workshops are available for school groups of all ages, together with a range of curriculum based workshops for all age groups and subjects.
