In Vitro Recipe #3: Magic Meatballs
July 31st 2014

Magic meatballs playfully familiarize children with the concept of in vitro meat. Just like modeling clay, a package of magic meatballs comes in a rainbow of meat colors, with exciting add-ins for flavor, texture and nutrition. Kids love to help out in the kitchen by transforming healthy in vitro meat into beach balls, Easter eggs or even pint-sized snowmen.

With the solar system activity pack, kids can create fun meatballs while learning about the planets. Use these serving suggestions to make your own tasty universe. To complete the look of an outer space expedition, serve the meatballs with black pasta and a sprinkle of ‘stardust’, or Parmesan cheese.

Should men be able to give birth to children?

Lisa Mandemaker: Using an artificial womb could lead to more equality between sexes, but also between different family layouts. If men would be able to give birth to children, it would maybe be easier for male same-sex couples to have a child together.
