4-H Sourdough Science

— Written By

Humans have been baking bread all over the world for thousands of years, yet we know almost nothing about the microbes that make traditional sourdough bread. In this activity, North Carolina students ages 11-18 will have the opportunity to solve the mysteries of bread! At the end of this workshop, they’ll have everything they need to measure height and pH, track the growth of a microbial zoo over time, and share data with REAL scientists.

Sourdough breadThis event is hosted by the 4-H programs of Burke, Orange, and Richmond Counties and will take place on January 26, 2021, at 6 p.m. Open to all North Carolina students ages 11-18.
