Where Does Our Food Come From and How Did it Get Here?
This free academy targets students entering eighth- or ninth-grade who are interested in STEM topics and food. The academy will follow the progress of food from the garden to the kitchen to the pantry for a rainy day. Attendees will learn the science behind the carbonation of root beer and bread; nutrients available in food and the presence of genetically modified genes in snacks; go on trips to local farms and food processing plants; and enjoy food-based games and movies as well as mentoring from high school and college students for preparation for the future.
