For our culinary and baking students, the last class before they go out on externship allows them to showcase all the skills that they have learned throughout their studies thus far on campus. Foodservice Operations class serves as an introduction into the real world of foodservice. Students have the opportunity to prep and work all stations inside the kitchen and the dining room. Culinary and baking students work together to create a menu based on the origin or theme of their choice, design and decorate the dining area, and execute a full dinner service.
All across the U.S., there is a great need for skilled workers in careers involving Science, Technology, Engineering and Math, collectively known as the STEM fields. There is ongoing growth in hands-on STEM careers, partly because these careers can’t be outsourced. And there’s a sense of urgency to help students develop along an educational path that will help them build skills for such careers.
