HAPCO’s Culinary Arts STEM program applies science, technology, engineering and mathematics to the world of cuisine in an interdisciplinary and applied approach. Students learn about nutrition, measurements, ratios and food preparation, encouraging them to be actively involved in better nutrition and healthy living. This introductory course provides information and teaches skills through a hands-on approach. It covers nutrition, starting at an elementary scientific level, with topics including: vegetable and animal protein, good and bad fats, good and bad carbs, seasoning and moisture, sauce basics and pairings. It demonstrates how we literally are “what we eat.” It also teaches various cooking and preparation techniques. It emphasizes intuition and self-reliance as students gain confidence in their own capabilities, encouraging students to continue their culinary arts knowledge and application of skills.
