What's the correlation between science and cooking a cake? Daniel Adamek and Judy Brown, ACTE ACTE Association for Career and Technical Education (formerly American Vocational Association)

ACTE Anodal Closure Tetanus Teacher of the Year, have developed a lesson called, "Savory savory, name for any plant of the genus Satureja, aromatic herbs and subshrubs of the family Labiatae (mint family).

The video showcases Brown and Adamek conducting a science experiment using an ordinary cake recipe, and cooking it 14 different ways with different ingredients.
The video provides teachers with new methods on how to teach advanced science concepts to their students. Brown works for the Alabama State Department of Education and tries to develop innovative ways to integrate career education into core academic courses. Adamek, who works with AZ Technologies in Huntsville, wrote the script for the ACCESS broadcast and helped write a lesson plan for teachers to use in the classroom.
