Popping With STEAM
Go deep into the food chemistry and physics of making popcorn as you guide your students to understand what makes popcorn pop (Psst…It’s not as simple as you think!) and how the microwave oven works.
Based on a tried-and-true food science project, this article and activity will demonstrate the concept of freezing point depression and molecular gastronomy as students make ice cream in a zip-top bag.
This two part article uses the Air Fryer and the Instant Pot® to graphically demonstrate many scientific principles and concepts. In addition to the chemical changes in the food cooked in these two remarkable appliances, students will discover important nutritional facts and the science behind them.
Next Gen Textiles–TwinkLED Toes
This article will introduce you to some illuminating and creative ways to utilize soft circuitry in your textiles, apparel and interior design programs that will have your students glowing with excitement! Using electronic components and a few basic craft supplies, your students can engineer fashion that will truly light up the night.
These light up shoe clips are a fun and fashionable project that students are sure to love! The clips can also be used to decorate book bags, purses, as hair accessories and more! Students are introduced to circuits and sewing with electrically conductive thread by creating a soft circuit and connecting it to an LED and battery.
Vision and innovation are not unique to the technology being developed today. In this article you’ll be introduced to a period in history that fairly exploded with energy and invention. Inspire your students to appreciate creativity and ingenuity as they prepare one of the most iconic recipes of all time.
Preparing the Original Palmer House Brownie recipe created for the 1893 Chicago World’s Fair is a sweet lesson in American innovation and history.
We’re excited to share all of our fresh ideas for teaching FACS! We hope you enjoy learning about our resources and we hope you’re inspired to add STEAM to your FACS program!
