Sweet Science: Volcano & Earth Layers Cake
Through a series of professionally facilitated volcano and lava-themed challenges, trivia games, and science lessons, your group will prepare for their final challenge of creating their erupting volcano! Before the event we will ship a Volcano Cake kit to each individual that includes everything needed to build the basic cake (no baking required). You’ll just need to find a few kitchen items around the house like bowls, spatulas and maybe a lab coat!
Want to try a different cake? Check out our Earth Layers Cake option.
Give your team a VOLCANIC experience!
No baking required - kits are shipped to you.
Prepare for a lava explosion with our Erupting Volcano Cake!
You’ve seen the erupting volcanos at the middle school science fair and be honest you always wanted to make your own. Or maybe you did all the work for your kids and they got all the credit. With this interactive sweet science activity, you will be able to explode your volcano cake and eat it too! And don’t worry if you’re not a cake connoisseur, we’ve got the baking aspect covered for you.
Using a 3-D, edible model of an erupting volcano you will be filled with questions as you problem-solve and construct the cake volcanoes, mix and create erupting “lava” and observe how the lava flows. Whether you are young or old everyone likes to explode something (safely) every once in a while. The only thing you will love more than creating these projects is eating them!
When the big day arrives, participants will start off altogether for icebreakers and instructions, then the Lead Facilitator will divide everyone into teams with a specific volcano assigned to them. Each group will embark on their 45-minute journey to study and build their specific volcanos while completing trivia and around the world challenges. Once complete your group will present their final product during the final “science fair”.
Feel free to grab a lab partner!
We also know if you have kids there is no way you’ll be doing this alone. Plus, it’s always nice to have a partner in a science experiment even if it’s just your dog…
These unique decorating kits provide an ingenious opportunity to wrap in a quick science lesson creatively. It can be difficult to teach abstract concepts that affect change in the surface of Earth so use this experience to pique their interest and introduce natural geological events that help sculpt our Earth. By tapping into the natural curiosity we all have about volcanoes, lava, and the mysterious core of the earth, this program uses an amazing lava cake to learn just how Sweet Science can be!
For the grand finale, you might even be able to get that first place ribbon you longed for so many years ago when our facilitator declares the ultimate winner. The team with the most votes will be the winner, but every other team will still get to enjoy the sweet reward of eating their hard work!
