Tandy YMCA
The partnership with the Tandy YMCA began in 2017 when the IAK Dietitians first implemented Cooking Club at Boevers Elementary.  For an end of the year celebration, IAK staff used the Tandy YMCA Healthy Table Kitchen for the students to cook their parents a meal.  For summer 2018, IAK and Tandy YMCA are partnering together to bring in Tulsa Public School (TPS) students for an opportunity to work in the kitchen for Cooking Club.  Students will learn basic cooking skills to create simple recipes while learning about the importance of the five food groups.  The TPS students will also be with IAK's Health Educators in the gym for physical activities through CATCH.  For more information contact one of our Dietitians

 

 

Therapy Town
The IAK Dietitians have partnered with the Dietitian at Therapy Town to provide Cooking Club to their clients in 3rd-5th grades.  Cooking Club is a fun, interactive program where students learn about the importance of the five food groups, math and science in cooking, and basic cooking skills they can use for the rest of their lives.  Therapy Town has an accessible garden that was utilized for some of the recipes during Cooking Club.  We plan to partner again in the summer of 2018!

 

 

Tulsa Children's Museum
Beginning in the summer and continuing into the fall of 2018 IAK will be partnering with the Tulsa Children's Museum.  The partnership will provide professional development to 60 teachers from 9 schools in Tulsa County on how to integrate Action Based Learning and STEM concepts in their classrooms.  We hope to build a sustainable program!
