We have our first-ever Chopped Junior Competition! Through our alliance with our neighboring business, Honeyseed, and a real-world problem in math class… we have planned a Bagel Bash. Students will take part in the design process to invent a new bagel and cream cheese flavor under specific conditions. The winning combo will then be sold at Honeyseed the week of May 15-19… part of the proceeds will support the culinary integration program, Cooking Up Learning, at Battle Academy! We could use some help donating any ingredients to make the creative process even more engaging! I can follow the steps in the design process to invent a new bagel and cream cheese flavor that meets specific goals, while giving me the opportunity to practice the 4 Cs (critical thinking, creativity, collaboration, and communication) within a “Chopped Junior” Competition.
