About the project (for email or articles)
The Chocolate Chip Cookie School has a simple goal: help kids aged 8-11 love learning and thrive.
How? Deconstruct America’s favorite treat into books and programs where kids plan a cookie business, examining and thinking deeply about every aspect of the cookie, its ingredients, production etc. Aligned with current education trends in teaching real-world, character building skills and integrated learning, the fun interactive nature of How to Make Smart Cookies will make learning feel like play. Mindfulness and empathy will naturally emerge from the kids’ detective-like activities as they understand who and what goes into a cookie…it’s a whole lot more than a tasty treat from a package!
The so-called 21st Century Skills will prep kids for life and work in a connected world where collaboration and design thinking are just as, or more, valuable than classic academic knowledge.
