Should Colorado Teenagers Be Learning How to Brew Beer in School? [POLL]

Learning fermentation science in college is one thing; but what about in high school?

A high school in Arvada is in the news, because its biology curriculum includes a project on the science behind brewing beer.

Now, I’m all for using real-world situations to teach science.  I don’t think I ever would have understood stoichiometry if my high school chemistry teacher hadn’t compared it to making a sandwich.

But, as much as biology is at play when making beer, maybe that isn’t the best way to teach teenagers.

At the very least, doesn’t it seem a bit hypocritical to teach how to brew beer in biology class, but then teach about the dangers of alcohol abuse down the hall in health class?  Not to mention that alcohol possession is illegal at that age…

What do you think?
