Food, Cooking and STEM

"Food, Cooking and STEM" is the product of a brainstorming session at the Science on Stage Festival in Prague in March 2022, when 15 or so teachers from across Europe decided that sharing our ideas around the context of food would be useful, given that this is a common topic to us all.

The international group of teachers, lead by David Featonby of Science on Stage UK, have collected their favourite recipes and favourite experiments and compiled them in a series of publications.

The group is still active and always looking for new ideas for their next publication. If you want to share your ideas about Food, Cooking and STEM, please get in contact with David at or
