Programs Brains On! The Science of Cooking

Show Logo

Brains On!, the science show for kids and curious adults, heads to the kitchen to examine the science of cooking.

In partnership with America's Test Kitchen Kids, hosts Molly Bloom and Nantene Ba break down four elements essential to cooking: Mix, Chop, Heat and Chill. Special guests include The Splendid Table host Francis Lam, and various America's Test Kitchen hosts and contributors: Molly Birnbaum, Dan Souza, Tucker Shaw, Katie Leaird, Kristin Sargianis and Elle Simone.

Brains On! is an award-winning audio show for kids and families. Each week, a different kid co-host joins Molly Bloom to find answers to fascinating questions about the world. Our mission is to encourage kids’ natural curiosity and wonder using science and history…but there's no age limit on curiosity, and episodes of Brains On! can be enjoyed by anyone.
