Teaching Science with Food Safety
FDA Symposium participants work on one of the activities.

During this half-day Symposium, experts and educators from FDA explained how FDA detects food-borne pathogens, how to culture bacteria found in food, and how FDA investigates an outbreak of foodborne illnesses. FDA scientists and master educators led inquiry-oriented and hands-on activities that can be used in the classroom to teach several of the National Science Education Standards, including those for Life Science (Structure and Function in Living Systems), Science and Technology, and Science in Personal Health and Social Perspectives. Each participant received a notebook of teaching resources and a stipend of $60 from FDA.
