Encouraging Food Science Education
"What's food science?"
It's a career that we may hear little about outside of the food industry but it's one that is vital to feeding and nourishing the world's population. For the last four years, TIC Gums has been on a mission to introduce the field to teachers and college-bound students from Harford County Public Schools. By hosting teacher in-service training at our Texture Innovation Center in White Marsh, MD and training students during the annual Ice Cream University course, we are spreading the word that food science attracts students with backgrounds in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) or culinary arts.
Again this year, teachers from Harford County Public Schools got hands-on experience with food science and learned more about our Ice Cream University course so that they could take that knowledge back to their classrooms.
Registration is now open for the 2016 class of Ice Cream University.
