Got a day? Turn it into a Food Science Day Camp! We have done the hard work for you.
The new My American Farm Food Science Fun guide contains 10 activities related to food science. These activities were developed to equip volunteers and professional educators with powerful tools for facilitating a food science day camp, or activities at a fair, other special event or in the classroom.
Food Science Activities include:
- An Ag Career for me
- Balloon Blow-Up
- Crazy for Compost
- Faced with a Healthy Snack
- Fact of Fairytale
- Kick the Can Ice Cream
- Parts of the Plant
- Play 'n Learn (My American Farm Games)
- Portion Power
- Taste Bud Challegne
How do you know these activites are effective? The resources contained in the guide were pilot-tested at several science day camps in California and Indianapolis. Nearly 3,000 students were reached during the testing period.
The “Food Science Fun” guide can be downloaded for free under Science Day Camp "Facilitator's Guide."
