The Sugar Association, the scientific voice of the U.S. sugar industry, is now a Accredited Educational Program. Offering resources for classroom and at home use, we proudly display the Accreditation Trustmark on our educational materials.

“While many teachers are already using our print materials and videos in their classrooms to teach students about the many facets of sugar, we feel that this accreditation provides validity to the value of the resources we offer,” said Jenny Martin, Sugar Association’s senior director of communications.

STEM is a curriculum based on the idea of educating students in the four specific disciplines of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (or five when art is included (STEAM)) in an interdisciplinary and applied approach. Rather than teach the four disciplines as separate and discrete subjects, STEM integrates them into a cohesive learning paradigm based on real-world applications.

The Sugar Association’s Field to Table STEAM packet designed for grades 7-12, is one of the resources that plainly displays the integration of these disciplines. Students learn about sugar’s history, how it is naturally made by plants, its impact on the environment, why it is added to foods and more.

ABOUT STEM.ORG Founded in 2001, Educational Research™ (SER) is the longest continually operating, privately-held STEM education research and credentialing organization in America. Through an extensive collaborative effort, SER has worked closely with researchers, an international coalition of educators, administrators, NGO’s, companies and schools to establish a set of broadly representative STEM benchmarks. The resources and proven best-practices of this initiative have led to the world’s original and most recognized, blockchain-secured and fully decentralized STEM credentialing framework: Accredited™ for programs, Certified™ for people, Reviewed™ for publishers, and Authenticated™ for products.
