Ginger Bread Chronicles 

To celebrate the holiday season, Upward Bound and CIDREAM built onto last year’s holiday event and revisited the Gingerbread Chronicles. Students learned the history of gingerbread, gingerbread houses, and the engineering process of building one. They took part in a presentation to refresh their minds on the history of the gingerbread houses and went over a component dedicated to S.T.E.A.M. They demonstrated their understanding by designing and creating a gingerbread house, as well as partaking in a Kahoot game to test their knowledge. Covering this historical, literary, and educational approach enhanced their critical thinking and recognition of the importance of Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math even in a holiday tradition.
