The Science of Gingerbread

The witch from Hansel and Gretel is terribly misunderstood. She spent years building her dream house out of gingerbread, frosting and gum drops and then two fat German brats come along and destroy it. It’s enough to make anyone a little peeved. Sure, it may have been a bit over the top to try and shove the children in an oven, but someone needed to teach those kids to respect other people’s property! Have your children avoid being cooked alive by teaching them about this unique baked good/building material and having them construct their own gingerbread home at the Discovery Science Center’s “The Science of Gingerbread” today. Once they’re done, maybe they’ll think twice before trying to eat someone else’s hard work.
