Food Science Activity Guides
This IFT Food Science Activity Guide (pdf, 1.3MB) includes numerous quick and easy activities, many of which were field-tested, for outreach to classrooms, community organizations, and others. Each activity includes background, an administrator's guide, and a student handout. Many of the activities from the guide coordinate directly with IFT's outreach presentations, which are available at Outreach Presentations.
