About Jeremy Snyder

For years, Jeremy Snyder collected chocolate chip cookie recipes from chocolate chip bags, cookbooks, newspapers, magazines, recipe websites, and blogs. As the recipes piled up, he wondered which one produces the best cookie. To answer this question he and his family served up 52 pounds of cookies to family and friends, and in the end one favorite recipe emerged. Jeremy will discuss the favorite recipe, how the chocolate chip cookie reflects American culture, and how to engage children in science at home. When he?s not baking cookies, Jeremy is a program manager in the field of energy efficiency and produces videos and multimedia at Science in a Nutshell Productions.
