Welcome to. . . What’s On Your Plate? Exploring Food Science!

You have a unique opportunity to explore the science behind how and where food is grown.   As a young person you will have the opportunity to consider a career in science while exploring the science of food.  This series of workshops/lessons will help you communicate basic food science concepts through hands-on experiences that are applied in a kitchen “laboratory” setting. Many of the experiences are similar to those a college student might complete in introductory food science.
