Your Dinner Plate Can Change the World – You Decide Workshop 2.0

Choose a day's meals, then learn about your choices. What's your human footprint, and how big is it? Food may be responsible for one-fifth of your emissions, which decides your carbon footprint (part of your human footprint).

Think about it: When you eat an egg, it's more than just an egg. You are eating the gas the truck used to deliver that egg, the coal used to generate electricity for its refrigeration, and the resources used to boil, fry, or poach that yummy egg, National Geographic explains.

‘You Decide’ workshops provide the opportunity for students to put into practice what they’ve learned during SciTech Days workshops. Reflecting on the workshop topic, students are asked to think about a particular issue, set priorities, make a choice, and choose an action. They’re given opportunities to process the content both as individuals and as teams. By integrating the experience with content material, the impact and relevance of this experience is magnified.

Science and technology topics include:
Environment, Energy, Health, Climate Change, Chemistry, Careers, and Project-based Learning

Program Capacity: 30
