At our workshops, you’ll take part in inquiry-based, hands-on STEM lessons addressing science standards in Chemistry, Biology, Environmental Science and Middle School Science. Talk to industry experts, tour an ethanol plant, and collaborate with other educators. Join our Alumni network and connect your students to the growing field of agricultural careers. See firsthand how Nebraska Corn is helping to Feed the World.

What’s it like at a Feed the World workshop?

How is science contributing to the future of global food and energy security? Learn how advancing technologies help us produce more with less. At a Feed the World workshop you will learn about the latest research and immerse yourself in biotechnology, soil science, water quality, energy production, and sustainable agricultural practices.

Upcoming satellite events

Take part in a Feed the World lesson at a Professional Development outreach event. These 50 minute sessions of engaging lab activities are designed to help you answer questions about GMOS, water quality, soil integrity, and ethanol production. We’ll get you busy with hands-on learning—come and see what Feed the World is all about!
