Science Sunday: Mummification

We are thrilled to have Mummies of the World: The Exhibition on display at the Connecticut Science Center. This exhibition focuses on how human remains have been mummified over thousands of years- either naturally or artificially. The big factor that goes into mummification is removing moisture, so that is what we are going to explore today on Science Sunday. To take this process down to a much smaller scale, we are going to mummify some food today. All of the materials you will need can be easily found around your home so we encourage you to follow along and try this experiment with us.

Watch the full Science Sunday segment here to learn more about this activity.

There is so much more Science Sunday to explore. Check out the full gallery of segments on our blog:
