NSF Funds What’s Cooking? for STEM

The National Science Foundation has awarded $2 million over two years to create a free public online multimedia resource serving up STEM concepts to adults with low levels of literacy and numeracy. “TV411 What’s Cooking?” puts on the front burner the biochemical, physical, and mathematical processes at play in our home kitchens, in the news, and in our lives, while offering multiple and engrossing opportunities for informal science education designed explicitly for the much-neglected audience of undereducated adults.
