Milky Way Cocktail?

Does a Milky Way Cocktail contain milk? Do you know what Dark Matter tastes like? That’s what the poster below asks. It challenges primary school kids (of all groups and from everywhere!) to come up with a recipe for this astronomical dish and/or drink. It’s a competition and the organisers asked me to take a place in the jury, as a teacher who knows a thing or two about space.

I was asked by Anke den Duyn, who’s writing a book for ASTRON about radio astronomy, aiming at primary school children. The winning recipes will end up in the book and on the menu of the Bos Pub in Lhee! You can send in your ideas until the 5th of May 2014. The winners will be announced on the day the book will be presented, but that date is not yet set in stone.

Good luck!
