more pictures

    Discovery of milk, this precious liquid that we consume every day.
    Where does it come from, what is its composition and what are its transformations?

    In brick, bottle, tube or powder… where does the milk we consume every day come from?
    What are the transformations that this precious liquid will undergo in order to be preserved for longer?
    These are all questions that we will try to answer through an approach that is both entertaining and scientific.

    Topics covered: definition of the cow and its lactation cycle, milk components and heat treatments, dairy products from cows and other animals in the world, tasting and observation of milk characteristics.

    Organisation: animation alternating between group activities (5 groups maximum) and reflections all together.
