about us

About Us

We are a group of editors, educators, and cooks applying America’s Test Kitchen’s scientific know-how and rigorous testing to create meaningful learning experiences for children. Our mission is to build a new generation of empowered cooks, engaged eaters, and curious experimenters. We encourage kids to take risks, embrace and learn from failure, and develop a healthy and positive relationship with food.

What’s STEAM?

We believe that food is a natural—and fun—way for kids to learn about STEAM: science, technology, engineering, the arts, and mathematics. Cooking showcases the inherent connections between these subjects, and not only engages kids with different interests and abilities, but creates a whole lot of deliciousness along the way.
