(11-16 yrs) STEM Dinner Party
April 7, 2020 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Specially geared to middle school students, this class delves into components of STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, and math). We’ll learn about fats, carbohydrates, proteins, nutrition, math, environmental & soil health, microbes & fermentation, and more, viewing cooking through the lens of the scientific method, treating recipes as experiments with delicious results. In addition, we will touch on food policy, justice, and sustainability during our lessons, all while teaching important life skills, like scaling recipes, budgeting, money saving tips, and properly handling food and kitchen equipment. Classes are designed for no parental involvement. Recipes are kept with “pantry cooking” in mind as much as possible, and offer substitution ideas and equipment workarounds throughout.
