Upcoming Programs: FoodMASTER

Using food as a tool to teach hands-on, minds-on science to 7th and 8th graders is the focus of the FoodMASTER Middle Science Rx for Science Literacy teacher training workshop Feb. 26 at the Laupus Library, East Carolina University, Greenville, NC. The workshop runs from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Rx for Science Literacy has partnered with FoodMASTER, an NIH SEPA-funded resource, to provide a 10-unit curriculum resource for middle school teachers. The classroom-tested curriculum supplement 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.

NCABR first offered this program in November. (See related story in Recent Activities.)
