About the event

Our favorite scientist, Liz Heinecke, the Kitchen Pantry Scientist, is back at The Thinking Spot. This time with a new book on Ecology! 

Learn the story behind her new book and watch her perform experiments from the book and maybe get to do some experiments of your own! 

She will also be available to sign her books.

Liz Lee Heinecke has loved science since she was old enough to inspect her first butterfly. After working in molecular biology research for 10 years and earning her master’s degree, she left the lab to kick off a new chapter in her life as a stay-at-home mom.

Soon, she found herself sharing her love of science with her three kids as they grew, chronicling their science adventures on her KitchenPantryScientist website. Her desire to share her enthusiasm for science led to regular television appearances, an opportunity to serve as an Earth Ambassador for NASA, and the creation of an iPhone app.

Her goal is to make it simple for parents to do science with kids of all ages, and for kids to experiment safely on their own.

Liz graduated from Luther College and received her master’s degree in bacteriology from the University of Wisconsin, Madison. She is the author of Kitchen Science Lab for Kids, Kitchen Science Lab for Kids: Edible Edition, Outdoor Science Lab for Kids, STEAM Lab for Kids, Sheet Pan Science, and Little Learning Labs: Kitchen Science for Kids.

Her namesake series, The Kitchen Pantry Scientist, pairs illustrated biographies with engaging hands-on activities inspired by their work. The books in that series include: Chemistry for Kids, Biology for Kids, Physics for Kids, and Math for Kids.

Her book - Physics for Kids - is a finalist for the American Academy of Science Subaru Prize for hands-on activities.
