The Kitchen Science Cookbook

The Kitchen Science Cookbook is a beautiful, lovingly crafted recipe book with a
twist — each recipe is a science experiment that you can do at home with your
family, using easy-to-find ingredients you’ll likely already have in your pantry.

Dr Michelle Dickinson (MNZM) - nanotechnologist, researcher and educator - has made it her
life mssion to make science and engineering accessible for all.
Well known for her science communication work in New Zealand, Michelle is a founder of
Nanogirl Labs Ltd, and the company’s CTO.
A Member of New Zealand Order of Merit, Michelle was winner of the Women of Influence
award for science and innovation in 2016, became a Sir Peter Blake Leader in 2015, and was
the winner of the Prime Ministers Science Media Communication Prize and the New Zealand
Association of Scientists Science Communicators Award in 2014.

If you can follow a recipe, you can explore science! The Kitchen Science Cookbook presents
science in a way that is easy to follow, familiar and widely accessible. The book seeks to enable
families to enjoy exploring science at home together.
Contains 50 science experiments, suitable for young scientists from 3-15. Each experiment has
been rigorously tested by a community of 2000 worldwide to ensure ease of understanding and
ready availability of ingredients.
Each experiment is set out just as you would expect a recipe to be presented in a cookbook.
Ingredients, equipment and easy-to-follow instructions make scientific exploration a pleasure.
Each experiment also has a clear explaination of the science involved, and suggests paths for
further exploration.
Carefully designed to make the perfect gift, and a treasured book. The Kitchen Science
Cookbook is beautifully presented as a hardcover recipe book. Every recipe is accompanied by
a beautiful full-page photograph.
Every book sold helps support Nanogirl Labs - a social enterprise - in their work to inspire
educate and empower through STEM, ensuring that science education is accessible to all.

Q: I’ve seen a product in store but can’t find it on your website. How can I order it?


If there's something you are after that isn't yet available here on our website, contact us and we'll see what we can do. If it’s something we have in stock and can send by courier, we will do our very best to make it available on our website.


Q: Why is there a minimum order quantity for some products?


Some of our products – such as beer and grocery items – can be bought individually in store, but we can only courier them in set quantities (such as boxes, cases or cartons). It is often quite a lot cheaper to buy in these quantities, which is why we show both the individual and bulk prices on the product pages. It’s always nice to know what you’re saving!
