Terra Nova Applied Chemistry/Sustainable Foods

Terra Nova Farm
10351 NW Thompson Rd.
Beaverton, OR 97229

Contact Terra Nova: 503.356.3710

Applied Chemistry is a team-taught course for students in grades 9-12. Students will work on our farm and in our kitchen to experience chemistry first hand. Since chemistry is part of our everyday lives our goal is to learn and experience chemistry through experimentation and engineering. The lab based course will show students how chemistry can be found in cooking pasta, pickling a cucumber, engineering soil to have the correct nutrient profile, and preparing a salad dressing that doesn't separate. This is a project-based course. Students will be taught and research principles of chemistry first. Once they have a solid foundation of content knowledge it will be applied to projects and engineering projects. This is lab based authentic learning. The end result of a project might be the perfect loaf of bread or growing medium for plant tissue cultures. Each student will learn content, use that content and reflect on the process. Students here will touch, feel, taste and grow using chemistry as their guide. This class is taught at the Terra Nova School of Sustainability; transportation is provided.
