GoNoodle will immediately release ten ATK Kids STEAM videos in its new channel, America’s Test Kitchen Kids. During the back to school 2022 season, GoNoodle and ATK Kids will release its first series of co-developed videos pairing some of GoNoodle’s favorite characters with some of the young chefs of America’s Test Kitchen Kids.
“We are excited to share America’s Test Kitchen’s scientific know-how and culture of rigorous testing to create meaningful learning experiences for children, educators, and the GoNoodle community,” says GoNoodle’s CEO, KC Estenson. “We believe in the power of hands-on learning, and the importance of STEAM education. Like America’s Test Kitchen Kids, we believe cooking showcases the inherent connections between food and science. We feel like cooking engages kids with different interests and abilities, and builds a bridge for some kids that tend to learn more effectively in more abstract ways.”
In the new channel, GoNoodle’s community of educators, parents, and kids will explore STEAM: science, technology, engineering, the arts, and mathematics, in videos that are fun and delicious. Topics range from hands-on, step-by-step recipes for easy snacks, to explorative short lessons answering questions like “what is umami?,” “what makes fizzy things fizzy?,” and “why don’t oil and water mix?” Recipe videos incorporate STEAM lessons and life skills that will build kids’ confidence while helping make them kitchen heroes one DIY project at a time.
GoNoodle will host a curriculum guide created by education specialists from America’s Test Kitchen to help connect lessons to school curriculum. The guide will offer resources that use food to teach about STEAM through clear instructions to help kids of varying skill levels succeed with ease.
“We’re excited to collaborate with GoNoodle and introduce our recipe content to their platform to further motivate, inspire and empower young chefs,” says Molly Birnbaum, Editor in Chief of America’s Test Kitchen Kids. “ATK Kids aims to foster curiosity in the kitchen and we are delighted to share our delicious recipes that are easy to follow and showcase how cooking at a young age helps develop important life skills and builds self-confidence.”
