Chickenology: Cracking the Truth about Eggs

On Demand

December 8, 2023

Connect your middle and high school students with STEM in food science during this virtual field trip with the Ohio Poultry Association!

Put to rest the misconceptions your students (and most consumers) have about healthy eggs and learn why Ohio is the #2 egg-farming state in the U.S. We’ll pull back the curtain on chickens’ egg-laying lifestyle and unscramble the mysteries of egg parts.

Help your middle and high school students crack into the truth of:

  • egg part identification
  • nutritional value
  • shell color
  • yolk color

Our eggsperts will lead students in exploring the science of hens’ environment and nutrition so that they can see for themselves what goes into raising healthy, happy chickens.

This LIVE Virtual Farm Trip is hosted by GrowNextGen, the educational initiative of the Ohio Soybean Council, in cooperation with, a team of educators that writes curriculum and manages education programs connecting the workplace to the classroom.


Backed by funding from Ohio soybean farmers and their checkoff program, GrowNextGen brings agriculture science to the classroom by providing real-world educational tools to engage the next generation workforce.
