Food For Thought Summer Camp 2023 Evaluation Report

December 27, 2023 | Public Programs

Food for Thought is an NSF-funded project (AISL # 1906706) that focuses on teaching the science of food preparation to families with children ages 7-13. This report focuses on the second year of Food for Thought summer camp. The Cincinnati Museum Center (CMC) hosted two weeks of Food for Thought summer camp in 2023. The camps were designed for elementary-aged students, specifically third and fourth graders. The first week of camp had a stronger food science focus, while the second week focused more on the cooking aspect of the project. Using an embedded instrument to capture data, the evaluation focused on campers' self-efficacy and responses to Wh-questions (who, what, where, when, why, and how) about cooking and related science concepts.
