2011: Food Factor

Overview of the Season

Your Project challenge this season is to investigate your food and find one way to improve its safe delivery to you. Some questions to consider while you investigate include: Where does your food come from? How is it grown? Where has it been? Who handled it? How did it get to your kitchen cupboard? Who protected it along the way? How did they prevent spoiling and contamination? How did they decide which food was good and which was spoiled or contaminated? Once you know about the threats your food faces and who helps protect it, do some research. What could go wrong? How could your food become contaminated or spoiled? How could your team help prevent one of those problems? How could your team protect or preserve your food?
