Educator Event

The world needs the brightest minds engaged in the science of food to meet the challenge of feeding a projected population of 9 billion in 2050.

To help educators introduce their students to the world of food science and technology, the Feeding Tomorrow Virtual Educator Event provides educators with resources they can use to introduce the science of food in the classroom, as well as career opportunities in the profession.

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 Feeding Tomorrow Educator Event includes 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
  • A workshop full of fun and valuable knowledge about the science of food
  • Illinois Continuing Education Credits

Registration for the 2021 event is now closed.
