Hundreds of Gaithersburg area elementary school students took to the Johns Hopkins University Montgomery County Campus in Rockville on Friday, April 5, and Monday, April 8, for a lesson in science and baking.
Led by Paula Gray of Norwich, Vermont's King Arthur Flour, fourth graders from Garrett Park Elementary, Brown Station Elementary, Darnestown Elementary, Fields Road Elementary, Travilah Elementary, Washington Grove Elementary and Jones Lane Elementary learned the art and science of bread baking.
The students would make two loaves of bread — one to take home and one to donate to Interfaith Works Food Pantry.
In addition to loaves of bread, Gray also taught students how to make homemade pretzels, cinnamon rolls and pizza.
Potomac's Beverly Farm Elementary also participated in the event.
