Event description

Description

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. Feeding Tomorrow, the foundation of the Institute of Food Technologists (IFT), is hosting their annual Educator Expo program event at IFT's Annual Meeting, IFT19 specifically for educators, teachers, and counselors. Participants will gain first hand exposure to IFT19 exhibitors to better understand opportunities around the science of food.

Participation is by invitation-only and 50 seats are available. Participants must be educators, counselors, or those involved directly with youth outreach. Lunch will be provided to participants.

*A special raffle will be held for those who attend the event! Win an opportunity for a food scientist to either visit your classroom or have the students come to the Food Science department at University of Holy Cross in New Orleans, LA!
