The Science of Gingerbread

The sweetest season at the Cube returns this winter. The Science of Gingerbread is the Discovery Cube’s annual holiday tradition that runs from November 29th to January 5th, 2020. Join us for Southern California’s largest Gingerbread Competition and Display.

The Science of Gingerbread daily program includes:

  • Can You Build it? Show: Using only wooden building blocks, families are invited to build and compete together in a variety challenges.
  • Gingerbread Man Escape: Families and kids help the Gingerbread Man run, run as fast as he can by designing, building, and testing his escape vehicle.
  • Design a Food Model: Kids practice the engineering design process by inventing and designing their own food model.
  • Cookie Decorating: Kids learn about primary and secondary colors as they mix their own colored frosting and decorate their own sugar cookies.
  • Tallest Tower Challenge: Families use only spaghetti and marshmallows to build the tallest tower. (Weekends only)
