Winter-Garden Kitchen Lab

Biologist and Natural Science educator Monica Franchy visits St. John’s and offers a one-day digital and culinary class. Ms. Franchy showed videos about how almonds grow from the perspective of a bee, the origins and nutritional benefits of the almonds. Taught the kids how to make almond milk from scratch and prepare a blueberry smoothie. The after school children filled a Q&A afterward, so we could assess how much they did absorb from the lesson. This was a pop-up class and pilot for future Garden Kitchen Lab curriculum-building where we would like to have kids record what they learn into visual digital diaries.
