About Food Science Class
The EIT FoodScienceClass brings food science and technology into classrooms and turns students into young food researchers to help raise a new generation of empowered citizens.
1. It all starts in the classroom
Lectures serve as a learning space on the topics of food production and processing, nutrition, cooking and sustainability. Students also learn how to critically evaluate food and health information in the media and online.
2. Students become detectives
Students investigate the techniques and ingredients used to produce the foods they commonly eat. With academia and industry as mentors, they identify the benefits and challenges involved in food production.
3. They inspire their communities
Students are trained on science communication and are responsible to spread their knowledge to their respective communities!
