Baking and Pastry for secondary students is a course that provides students an opportunity to develop foundational skills needed for a seamless transition to a postsecondary program, workforce, or military. Students will develop advanced skills in safety and sanitation in addition to management and professionalism. Specialized content includes units on formulas and techniques, basic baking principles, specialized dietary baking, breads, desserts and pastries, and advanced techniques for specialty cakes, confections, piping, plate presentation, and flavor pairing. Concepts are aligned with competencies from the American Culinary Federation (ACF) Education foundation assessment, ACF Retail Commercial Baking Certification. Integration of the strategies from the Family and Consumer Sciences student organization, Family, Career and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA), provides leadership and entrepreneurship development in addition to an opportunity to compete and demonstrate technical skill attainment. Credits: 2
Students will learn the Swift programming language and the Application Programming interface (API) to write their own Applications for use on iPhone and iPad. Students will work in teams and as individuals to develop apps using Xcode. Credit: 1 (Counts as Computer Graduation Requirement)
Students will learn the importance of cyber forensics in the global supply chain and how to conduct investigations that include gathering evidence, using software to decode hidden files, and presenting findings. Organizations increasingly rely upon relationships with third-party vendors and partners. These relationships have become progressively more complex as companies engage in more cross-border relationships. A firm’s scrutiny of its supply chain technology is particularly important in the modern era of hacking and computer crimes. Failure to study adequately cyber-attacks can substantially increase an organization’s risk of significant financial losses, as well as exposure to legal investigations and reputational damage.
Topics cover emerging and important areas such as product/service supply chains, security, sustainability, and supply chain vulnerability. Students will be given an introduction to key quantitative techniques that can be applied to logistics such as simulation and modeling. Decision Models for Supply Chain Management, Logistics, Emerging Markets, and Economic Development, as well case studies for world leaders in global logistics will be studied. Students will establish their own distribution and logistics center to serve the Richland 2 Backpack Program.
