Baking Builds FACS STEAM

Baking is a tremendously compelling way for students to gain science, tech, engineering, art and math (STEAM) literacy and skills.  Whether labeled CTE, Culinary, STEM or “Maker Movement,” offering baking labs and activities serves Family & Consumer Sciences teachers.  Some quick go-to places to see “how” include these links to Home Baking Association baking STEAM resources.
Baking Builds STEAM workshop powerpoint from the 2016 FACE conference outlines the multiple sciences baking requires. Tech, engineering, art and math examples and activities are also included.

Ingredients are a great “test kitchen” STEAM focus– each ingredient has functions, if you want to create or adapt recipes for specific customers or needs, it requires students to hypothesize, test recipe outcomes using controls and variables and consumer -test the results.

Bake “the latest” in Baking STEAM!
