Grade 8 | Lower School Institute (Hybrid)
Like our other hybrid offerings, this five-week program combines on-campus experiences with online learning. The Chemistry of Cooking begins with a three-week online experience that engages students in coursework and preparation through a variety of online platforms and computer-based learning experiences. That experience is followed by two weeks of residency on Phillips Academy’s campus, where students will apply what they have learned in the online portion of the course to real-life lab experiments, projects, and in-person learning. During their time on campus, students will utilize the school’s excellent facilities and resources—including the Gelb Science Center and Paresky Commons dining hall—to think about chemistry in both complex and simple ways.
Designed for rising 8th-graders as part of our Lower School Institute, only one section will be offered in 2017:
Through classwork, field trips, evening study sessions, and online activities, students will work to develop and apply their knowledge of scientific concepts to better understand the chemical reactions that are present in a variety of approaches to cooking.
