In “Bread 101,” students explored with a team of faculty, from the sciences and humanities the energy requirements, biomedical and biochemical aspects, and local and sociopolitical context of bread production. Students read and discussed a variety of primary and secondary literature related to wheat production, the microbiological, chemical, and physical processes that transform wheat into bread, the energy cost of this transformation, and cultural implications of bread production. Eleanor Vandegrift was among the team of faculty who led the course, and was mentioned in Jay W. Roberts’ case study on experimental education.
