Green Ninja is an educational initiative to inspire interest in the science and solutions associated with our changing climate. Adventures of the Green Ninja – a superhero – are told in a youth-oriented and humorous way, but grounded in science and data. Green Ninja curriculum is used to support teachers in the classroom and promote hands-on learning experiences that are designed to meet the Next Generation Science Standards. It is a collaboration at San Jose State University.
For the Iron Green Chef episode, guess who was the chef?
In a fiery battle of burgers, the Green Ninja faces off against the fast-food flinger himself: Chef Artie Fisher! They compete to make the perfect All-American Burger. Everybody likes their burger differently, so it is not a surprise that the two chefs choose different ingredients.
The Green Ninja’s final product is flawless
while Artie’s burger turns out all wrong!
