What captures the interest of students? FOOD!

Yes, food can be used to engage students inquiry-based science — really!  
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in collaboration with the National Science Teachers Association (NSTA) have created Science and Our Food Supply, an innovative, interactive supplementary curriculum for use in middle & high school family & consumer science classes.

During this one day workshop, teachers will have the opportunity to participate in food science experiments, explore food safety issues, and become familiar with the lessons and activates in the Science and our Food Supply Curriculum.

Presenter: Linda Dykstra

Registration Fee: FREE!
Every teacher who participates in this workshop will also receive a FREE Science and Our Food curriculum.
