Newly Renovated Food Lab Enhances Students' Learning Experience
UCM students in the Dietetics, Hotel and Restaurant Management, and Family and Consumer Science programs returned to class this fall to discover a state-of-the-art learning facility for food-prep and experimental foods classes.
The Department of Nutrition and Kinesiology completed a $443,000 remodel of its food lab. The three-month renovation project includes new floors, cabinets, countertops and more student workspace and new appliances.
"The biggest difference is the feeling of being in this new class environment," says senior Dietetics student Jonna Palmer. "Before, I felt like I was in an apartment kitchen. Now, the equipment is uniform and industrial, similar to what you would find in the workforce."
By adding an additional workstation, classroom space became more efficient. The extra station allows more students to gain hands-on learning experience at one time, rather than observing others.
Within the next few years, the program plans to renovate the dining area and the quantity foods kitchen. By updating these areas, students will be working in an environment that will closely resemble working in industry.
"We're excited to provide our students with this opportunity and are confident that it will translate into a more productive and engaged-learning experience," says Michael Godard, chair of the Department of Nutrition and Kinesiology.
Students in the Dietetics program are learning to a greater degree by gaining hands-on experience in the newly renovated food lab.
