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. Contact: Applied Chemistry/Sustainable Foods 503.356.3710. To apply- submit a forcasting sheet.
