Food Science at Churchill, 8/24

the chemistry and art of cooking

a 4th year science class

This class counts as a 4th year science credit or an elective depending on what the student needs. 40% of our time is in labs, either chemistry or foods labs.

Welcome Back to School!

I am excited that your child is in Food Science this year. I have an exciting year planned. One of the things you can look forward to as a parent is the opportunity to watch your child's cooking skills and confidence grow. We start basic and build, so as the students learn the chemistry behind the food, they begin to incorporate that knowledge into how to make better food. Feel free to let your child give you a demonstration of what s/he is learning in class!

For a successful year, your child will be creating a science notebook. Please make sure s/he as a spiral notebook, a pencil/pen, colored pencils and a glue stick.

ServSafe and/or Food Handler Certification

If your child is interested in working in the food industry, s/he might want to take advantage of the ServSafe or Food Handler Certification. I will be tutoring students on Wednesdays after school in the library to get them ready for this certification exam.

The NRA website states: Learn basic food safety practices for preparing and serving food. Earn your food handler certificate from the foodservice experts, the National Restaurant Association.
