Why does caffeine make us feel energized?  In this month’s Kitchen Science program, we’ll be exploring the science behind caffeine and how it affects our bodies.  Learn about the chemical structure of caffeine and how similar it is to sleep-inducing adenosine.   Take a guess at the caffeine content in some of your favorite foods and beverages, and predict how much caffeine your body can handle.  Create some of your very own caffeine art, and learn about different ways to recycle coffee grounds.
