Wordless Wednesday: The Science of Gingerbread

The Holiday Season is quite busy in Orange County, and there is definitely not a shortage of fun things to do. The problem is, which events to attend. Last week, we went to an event at The Discovery Science Center here in Orange County. They have two special exhibits going on right now. The first exhibit is “Star Wars-Where Science Meets Imagination” and the second is “The Science of Gingerbread”.

We attended an event for The Science of Gingerbread, even though it seemed to be, Star Wars Meets Gingerbread.  The Discovery Science Center has a Gingerbread Competition each year, and there were several people who went with the Star Wars Theme.  I have to admit, I was pretty impressed with the Star Wars creations.

During the event, they even had a candy derby car race. Angry Kid created his own little car, which is featured in my last picture.

The Science of Gingerbread Exhibit is open from November 25, 2011 to January 1, 2012.  It includes daily activities such as: Participate in hands-on kitchen science activities, Find out all about kitchen tools, recipe science and more, and See award-winning Gingerbread Competition entries. Be sure to check it out. They have some special activities scheduled during the Holiday Break.
