Why teach science through food?
Food and cooking promote inclusive opportunities to draw on student assets and facilitate community-oriented learning
Food helps connect science to students’ everyday lives and the world around them
Food can make science learning more accessible and approachable
Food and cooking provide meaningful and safe ways to “do science” and build science practices through tinkering and student-designed investigations
Why Bite Scized Education?
We believe that many educators already know the potential impact food can have! Our goal is to help by providing high-quality instructional resources and teacher training to maximize student impact.
“I’ve always been interested and knew there was science behind food and cooking, but I didn’t know exactly what it was or how to approach it, let alone how to implement it with students. There are so many different lessons where I say- oh my gosh- it ties into so many of my classes.”
We are looking for enthusiastic teachers for our 2024-2025 teacher cohort!
