Abstract

This article looks at the history of molecular gastronomy, how it is defined and used in teaching natural sciences. The article also discusses the cooperative molecular gastronomy education research and development project started in 2011, as well as an affiliated continuing training project for teachers. The project involves developing new research-based and meaningful approaches to teaching sciences, especially chemistry and home economics, in cooperation with teachers.
