Join us at Glasgow Science Centre, where we will host workshops on the topic of healthy and sustainable food production.
About the workshops
In collaboration with Glasgow Science Centre, we are hosting a workshop series all about the future of food. These workshops will focus on educating families and young people about all thing's food science. After a successful experience hosting these workshops last year, we are back again in October 2023, and we will be running the workshops between the 14th-22nd October.
On the science centre floor, we will have a “meet the expert” zone to encourage children to consider a future career in the agrifood industry. With numerous career opportunities in agrifood and the future of our food system in the younger generation's hands, our workshops are a first step to engage them in the value of food.
We will also be hosting closed workshops for schools and social groups in the local community around Glasgow. If you would like to find out more, please contact Laura Elphick at firstname.lastname@example.org
Who is involved?
Each of our partners and startups attending the event will be hosting their own activities to inspire children about healthy and sustainable food production. Children will be able to ask questions and gain knowledge whilst having fun!
The following 3 organisations will be attending the event and holding their own activities as part of our “Meet the expert” zone.
SAMS: The Scottish Assocation for Marine Science will be hosting an activity all about seaweed. They will educate children about edible and farmed seaweeds, to raise awareness of using seaweed as a food source and feed ingredient. Children will be able to learn about the seaweed life cycle and handle live seaweed, as a sensory learning experience.
