Chickenology: Cracking the Truth about Eggs
December 8, 2023
1 p.m.-1:45 p.m. (ET)
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.
