Kids Kitchen Oasis –Summer Food &  STEAM Lab is virtual  garden to table summer experience for kids ages 7- 13.

Students engage daily in the multifaceted nature of food from seed to waste through activities like sprouting seeds, nature observational walks, tending to a garden, harvest food grown from our own hands, doing food “science” experiments, painting still lives of our vegetables, and creating food memory books. 

Kids Kitchen Oasis –Summer Food &  STEAM Lab teaches cooking in an interdisciplinary approach using food as a catalyst to teach about all aspects of life.

An investment in teaching your child to cook sets a foundation for them to nourish and nurture themselves forever, those they care about and the earth that feeds them.

When I cook with my son, I might chop vegetables and have fun with different shapes.

Cooking is a way to teach kids about things, like reading or math with all of the weights and measures.

There are so many things that are part of cooking that are also very educational.
