Baking Builds FCS STEAM
Thursday, March 28 – 4:00 PM EST
Baking in school is science, test-kitchen engineering, art and math. During the webinar, you can receive reliably researched baking-specific culinary or foods lab resources and methods to develop your test-kitchen skills and reputation. FCCLA or 4-H service projects and community fund-raising are secondary benefits to the best practices highlighted in this webinar. Family and consumer sciences (FCS) courses can boost their STEM + Art (STEAM) methods and best practices with the resources provided during the session. Connections for service learning and fund raising with Smart Snack or specialty baked goods created in the school or community “test kitchen” will be outlined and resources or on-line links provided. The session is targeted for FCS Teachers, extension FCS and SNAP Ed educators, college FCS Ed students, and FCS state administrators. Click to Register!
