SET Day – Pizza 101

On February 21, 2024, Erin Goldberg (Research Associate) and Amanda Sa (Post-Doctoral Fellow) hosted Grade 11 and 12 students and their teachers from across the province as part of Science, Engineering, and Technology (SET) Day!

Students learned about the science involved in making one of Canada’s favourite foods – Pizza, and the many job opportunities available in the food and human nutritional sciences! During this hands-on activity making pizza from scratch, students learned about dough formation, fermentation, and cheese production, and also gained experience in the nutritional and sensory analysis of pizza.
