BRAIN CHASE ELECTIVES
Edible Education Cooking Challenge
Brain Chase is proud to partner with Virginia-based Edible Education to deliver a hands-on, virtual summer and after-school cooking program for kids.
Chef Ann from Edible Education is a master of preparing simple, healthy, and delicious recipes. Each week, students will watch Ann prepare one of her favorites. They’ll then download the recipe and follow her lead.
Once each cooking project is complete, students will take a digital photograph of themselves with their delectable dish and upload their photo to the Cooking Challenge page. They will also have the opportunity to write a few words to describe their experience and explain what they whipped up.
In addition to needing a digital camera each week, students will be asked to track down simple recipe materials to complete each assignment:
- Program instructs students in safe food preparation, nutrition, and cleaning up
- Participating students will likely be more helpful in the kitchen at home
- Instant tasty treats once each challenge is completed
- Preparation required; while most ingredients can be readily found around the home, extra grocery store trips are likely
- Parent/guardian supervision necessary to prevent cuts and burns
- Requires kitchen and kitchen equipment; not recommended for students participating only in a classroom environment
