Recently in Food Science, the students baked 6 cakes using 6 different leavening agents to see which one worked the best. Then, they measured the heights their cakes rose and, of course, did some taste testing.

Grade Level: 9-12

Prerequisite: Recommended: Intro to Agriculture, Food & Natural Resource. Freshman must have completed Intro to Ag.

The Warsaw FFA Chapter had the opportunity to assist with the 4th Annual Barn & Business Breakfast at Grace College Orthopedic Capital Center yesterday. This event was put on by the Kosciusko County Community Foundation, Kosciusko County Chamber of Commerce, Grace College, Silveus Insurance, and Kosciusko County Farm Bureau. This event was a perfect chance for FFA members to mingle and network with top business and agriculture leaders in our community, along with hearing from great guest speakers Larry Clemens, Director of North America's Agriculture Program, & Dr. Nate Bosch, Director of the Lilly Center for Lakes & Streams.
