Professional Development Meeting Information
Title: From the Food Science lab to the Cafeteria and Beyond

Breakfast session for CSIFT members and community to highlight some of the great food science work that is happening right in our own backyard.

The Schurz high school food science lab is something we know our CS-IFT community will want to know more about so we’re providing a first hand experience – hear from the principal, teacher, and students themselves and get a tour of the facility. The students at Schurz High School are not only learning about new ways to farm (urban farming, hydroponics, etc) and feed their community, they are also collaborating with MIT media lab (open source global data project), SpaceX, and NASA to collect data that will help provide future fresh foods in space.

In addition to introducing the Schurz High School children to the great field of food science, this food lab is also working with two outside organizations to empower underprivileged youth to transform their neighborhoods (BuildOn) and to provide the students an opportunity to explore their talents after school and during the summer months (After School Matters).
