Science on the Menu

Arnold Mathijssen, Assistant Professor of Physics
- | Xfinity Live, 1100 Pattison Avenue, Philadelphia, PA 19148

Penn Arts & Sciences is collaborating with Philabundance for a special Science Café focused on food science and food insecurity. 

Join us at Xfinity Live during the Camp Out for Hunger to hear Assistant Professor of Physics Arnold Mathijssen describe recent scientific advances in the context of the culinary arts. The menu will include the physics of drinks and cocktails, a series of main courses, and finish with the science of coffee and desserts. We’ll discuss how science can improve gastronomy, and how food can enhance science by making research more inclusive and accessible. As always, there will be time for questions and answers, as well as receptions before and after the talk.
