Classroom programs allow students to focus on teacher-selected areas of interests, topics, TEKS, and connections, and provide a personalized approach that gives students much more direct interaction with the chef instructors than our assembly programs. Students will embark on a journey of knowledge as we learn the science, history, and wonders of outer space. How do astronauts live in space? How do they prepare for long voyages? What do they eat? How do they drink and survive in space? What is it like to live and work on a space station? Kids will be encouraged to learn more about astronomy and space-based careers through NASA pictures, videos, and this fun science-based program. Students will learn the science of motion, matter, and energy as it portrays both cooking in space. Students will learn about the effects of gravity on matter in space. While exploring our solar system, we will expand what is available to eat and drink. As mankind returns to the moon and voyages to Mars, astronauts need to transport nourishment and materials on their trips. This program brings a first-person approach to the selection of meals, storage of food, and different methods of outer-space food preparation. We’ll also discuss the general history of the American space program along with past shuttle missions, current-day space stations, and future voyages. This program is priced for up to 52 students, additional students will be pro-rated.

Students Will

  • Identify and compare Space pioneer challenges from the past, present and future by using a timeline, and identify how the research done by these pioneers affected the field of space exploration.
  • Observe from a visual presentation how space pioneers brought air, food, water, and shelter with them to sustain their space exploration and learn about the forms of matter of each.
  • Investigate how astronauts select, store and eat their food on their trips by experimenting with hydration and thickeners.
  • Understand how gravity is different on Earth versus in space and why, and analyze the use of Hydroponics and Aeroponics in food science.
  • Differentiate between energy transfer methods like conduction, convection, radiant heat, and magnetic energy, and use critical thinking skills to explore the differences between fresh foods, irradiated, intermediate moisture, rehydratable, thermo-stabiliz
  • Literacy Connection: Space Food and Nutrition, NASA, ISBN 0811873471.
  • All students will get personal interaction with the chef instructor, ingredients, recipes, and cooking instruments and will get a chance to interact with some actual unused astronaut food donated by NASA while exploring the evolution of food in space.
