Join us for Flavor Lab!

After learning about the science of taste buds and how food is flavored, students will work on a number of fun projects where they can test some of their new knowledge around taste and flavor!

Students will learn about flavors such as sweet, sour, salty, bitter, and umami and food trends around the world.

Conceptual Knowledge -

1. Different kinds of flavors are detected by our taste buds, which then send different messages to our brains about what we are eating and if we like it.

2. Our sense of taste and what foods we like to depend on our taste buds, which can change over time.

Key Vocabulary -

• taste buds – the little sensory nerve endings on the surface of your tongue and back of the throat that allow you to experience sweet, salty, sour, bitter, and savory/umami flavors

• saliva – a liquid in your mouth that your body produces that works with your taste buds and softens food • papillae – tiny bumps and spikes that cover your tongue

Cross-Curricular Links -
