On November 22, 2012, Pueblo Science and the University of Toronto family care office brought hands-on science activities that parents could do with their children to postdocs, students, faculty and staff of University of Toronto. Prof. Cynthia Goh introduced the history of Pueblo Science and gave a short talk on the importance of having parents engaged in science together with their kids. Alon Eisenstein and Neta Raz instructed the activity. They started with gelation, turning tatziki into gel balls served on top of cucumber slices, the tatziki explodes in your mouth after biting the gel, it was delicious! They then followed it with dessert, using chocolate to calculate the speed of light! Afterwards, the parents made their own playdough, played with it and learned series and parallel circuits in the process!
