Rx for Science Literacy is partnering with Novozymes North America to present a one-day workshop featuring FoodMASTER Middle Science, an NIH SEPA-funded resource for middle grade science classrooms.

FoodMASTER is a 10-unit curriculum resource that uses food as a tool to teach hands-on, minds-on science to 7th- and 8th-grade students. Workshop participants will experience the FoodMASTER approach while completing scientific inquiry learning labs and exploring ways to incorporate FoodMASTER materials into the middle grades science classroom.

The classroom-tested curriculum resource features 24 hands-on laboratory experiences and 12 health-focused extension activities. Each chapter provides users with hands-on, application-based activities, detailed procedures, science concepts to be emphasized, materials needed, critical thinking exercises and background knowledge with instructions for educators. Lab experiences and extension activities were designed to be implemented in any classroom environment without the need for specific laboratory space.

Each lesson is aligned with the North Carolina Essential Science Standards and the Next Generation Science Standards.

Workshop participants will receive online access to all resource materials, including supplemental instructional videos.

This workshop is open only to North Carolina middle school science teachers.
