Chef Koochooloo, a National Science Foundation and Start it @KBC backed company, provides a curriculum and technological platform that teaches kids Social Responsibility, Global Competency, and STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, and math) through cooking healthy international recipes, via dynamic educational apps, interactive services, and engaging curriculum.
Our enrichment program blends humanity’s oldest means of socialization—cooking and eating together—with its most modern academic lessons. With lessons that are societally sensitive, relevant, and aligned with Common Core, New Generation Science Standards (NGSS), IB and ELA standards, the student embarks on a delicious, scientific culinary journey, discovering new countries, cultures, and peoples.
To create a global impact and take a consequential step towards ensuring that our youth (exclusive of race, gender, or financial class) grow up healthy, educated, and empowered.
Chef Koochooloo is a forum where students and educators can discover the world through nutritious, international cooking, enriched STEM content, and “Take Action” segments aiming to educate and inspire kids.
Our application content is created to align with K-5 National Learning Standards, and students are given the opportunity to learn Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math while cooking healthy, culturally sensitive recipes and developing a sense of social responsibility!
We serve parents, teachers, school districts, private corporations, and non-profit organizations.
We are working hard to include recipes and lessons from every country in the world. After our launch and a successful crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo, members of our local multicultural communities donated recipes and content they felt represented their home countries.
Our curriculum will eventually include educational content for every nation counted by the United Nations and any region or locality suggested to us. Want to see a recipe, country, or lesson represented? Click here to suggest one!
