Educator Expo

The Feeding Tomorrow Educator Expo program 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 Educator Expo Program will be a virtual event this year, and it 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. The event will be held on Wednesday, July 15. We are currently working to transition the onsite program to a virtual experience and will have more details soon!

Teachers will 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

Space for this free opportunity is limited to 75 K–12 educators and requires an application to fill out. The application deadline has passed. Participants will be notified of their status on May 1.
