STEAM + FACS = Salsa!

 Story image 1_0

For the third year, STEAM coach Mr. Pytleski and FACS teacher Mrs. Christensen partnered on a salsa project that spanned second grade to senior students. During the second grade Life Science plant unit, Mr. Pytleski gave the students a real-life perspective by involving them in raising vegetables in the CL greenhouse.

The elementary students later helped him harvest the tomato and pepper crop. That's when Mrs. Christensen's high school  classes began to work. They learned about preserving food by making and canning salsa. They chopped, boiled, peeled, and filled 187 pint jars to sell locally grown "Central Lyon Salsa."

Pints of salsa will be for sale at $5 with the proceeds funding future STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts, and Math) projects. Contact Jerry Pytleski to buy a pint! Cell: 712-470-7312 | School Email: jpytleski@centrallyon.org

Thanks for volunteer Ginger Rasmussen who helped with the canning process!
