Food Science Class Update

Greenback Night...this Tuesday, September 20 at 6:30

Please join us this Tuesday to meet your child's teachers. We start at 6:30, but parking will be at a premium, as there is also a volleyball game at WC that night. I would love to meet you!

Project Based Learning

Each 9 weeks we will be doing a PBL (Project Based Learning). Food Science is a Career and Technology Education (CTE) class. As a CTE course, we listen to industry requests for preparing our students to enter the workforce. A PBL address industry concern about students being able to use critical thinking to solve real world problems, work as a team, and to be able to present findings to others. So, each 9 weeks we will be doing a PBL. Each one will be based on a question that the students will research and try to address and then present to industry personnel. Our first PBL is, "Is Our Food Safe?" Currently, we are planning on having HEB microbiologist to work at the HEB Food Safety Lab to judge our presentations on October 12. I am excited to be a part of this instructional method.
