Stringer, Elizabeth I.; Hendrix, Jasmine D.; Swortzel, Kirk A.; Williams, J. Byron; Schilling, M. Wes – Journal of Food Science Education, 2019
Historically, high school chemistry has been the predominate venue for the introduction of food science curriculum to students. With the current decline in chemistry as a required course for graduation, the possibility of exposure to food science in high school could equally decline. The purpose of this research was to determine if high school…

Beavers, Amy S.; Murphy, Lindsay; Richards, Jennifer K. – Journal of Food Science Education, 2015
A successfully targeted intervention can influence food safety knowledge, attitudes, and behaviors, as well as encourage participants to recognize their own responsibility for safe food handling. This acknowledgement of an individual's responsibility and capacity to address food safety can be understood as self-efficacy of food safety (SEFS). This…

Chapin, Travis K.; Pfuntner, Rachel C.; Stasiewicz, Matthew J.; Wiedmann, Martin; Orta-Ramirez, Alicia – Journal of Food Science Education, 2015
Career and educational opportunities in food science and food safety are underrecognized by K-12 students and educators. Additionally, misperceptions regarding nature of science understanding persist in K-12 students despite being emphasized as an important component of science education for over 100 y. In an effort to increase awareness…

Shearer, Adrienne E. H.; Snider, O. Sue; Kniel, Kalmia E. – Journal of Food Science Education, 2013
With the persistence of microbiological foodborne illness and anticipated future shortage of scientists with agricultural and food science expertise in the United States, it is imperative to educate youth on microbiological food safety and enhance their awareness of opportunities to become engaged in finding solutions to food safety challenges. To…
