What happens to a food’s taste if your nose smells something else at the same time? Can you identify flavor with your eyes closed? Food tastes the way it does because of our taste buds, but our sense of smell and sight also impact our experience. Join us in this virtual Tech for Girls workshop for two hands-on experiments to explore how your senses work together to help you taste and enjoy food.
