Tweens in our Curiosity Club on Saturday learned firsthand about food safety and preparation, measuring basics, making healthy choices and Hummus 101! Tweens split into team girls and team boys and went head-to-head making their own batches of hummus. End result: Even match. Both teams made super hummus enjoyed by all!
The Tweens club is open to anyone ages 9 to 12 and meets on Saturday afternoons at the library in the multi-purpose room. This kind of class is a challenging exercise in planning because the room itself has no kitchen, no sink, no running water, etc.
Our planned expansion will solve that problem because it includes a kitchen and nearby sink and water both for cooking classes and science experiments.
