Educator Program Event

The Feeding Tomorrow Educator Program Event aims to raise awareness and understanding of the types of careers available for K–12 students in food science and technology. The world needs the brightest minds engaged in the science of food in order to meet the challenges ahead of us to feed a projected population of 9 billion in 2050.

Feeding Tomorrow unites with the Chicagoland Food Science Foundation and FONA International in Chicago to provide an educational experience specifically for educators, teachers, and counselors. The virtual 2020 Educator Program Event included opportunities to connect with food industry professionals, gain access to teaching resources and experiments, connect with other educators and see what career opportunities exist.

Participating teachers receive:

  • Tools, resources, and experiments for classroom use
  • Chance to win an opportunity for a food scientist to visit your classroom
  • A workshop full of fun and valuable knowledge about the science of food
  • Illinois Continuing Education Credits

Application Deadline

Space for this free opportunity is limited to 75 K–12 educators and requires an application to fill out. The application deadline for the 2020 event has passed.
