Harper Adams’ summer school for teenagers interested in careers in food are being encouraged to apply for places for this summer.
The Food Science Summer School is designed to provide year 12 students with an opportunity to explore the topic of food science and develop understanding of the fascinating and rewarding careers the food industry has to offer.
Teenagers who enrol for the Summer School at Harper Adams University will take part in hands-on food product development, visit a food factory, explore the food chain from farm to fork, and participate in underpinning lectures that shed light on the absorbing world of food science and technology.
Students who attended the Food Science Summer School 2017 said they enjoyed the opportunity to see how the food industry really worked.
“I really enjoyed the Food Science Summer School,” said one student. “I loved visiting Faccenda as I have never been in a working factory so this helped me to improve my knowledge of the food supply chain. I am very keen to do a degree in Food Science so I have found the Summer School very useful as it has given me an insight into the food industry and careers within this.”
“Overall I have found the Summer School fab! I really enjoyed the factory visit and the lectures. It has given me a chance to ask the questions I want to ask to be able to make informed decisions.”
