Innovating Science kitchen kit is used to demonstrate a variety of scientific techniques themed around common kitchen materials. The kit has activities for performing chromatography on commercial food colors, using chemical tests to identify an unknown cooking ingredient, examine the protein-digesting ability of a common meat tenderizing enzyme, test an unknown juice or soda using titration to quantify vitamin C levels (juice and soda sold separately), and examine differences and similarities in materials used to clean (soap, hand dishwashing detergent, and machine dishwashing detergent).
