Abstract

The simple and everyday practice of curd formation involves concepts taught in biology (microbial fermentation), chemistry (conversion of milk lactose to lactic acid) and physics (coagulation of milk proteins with acid). Can we use this process to offer a hands-on introduction to what it means to think like a scientist?
