Abstract

This paper presents the preliminary development of engineering units for a year-long high school Food Science and Chemistry course. While the course is not intended as an engineering course, we explored ways that students could be introduced to the engineering design process, and other engineering concepts, as a way to motivate interdisciplinary thinking and inspire future exploration. As this project is in its early stages, we will present three potential units that incorporate engineering while meeting Next Generation Science Standards and Minnesota State Science Standards related to this course.
