Linda Gauthier and her team at Louisiana State University (LSU) hosted a Microbiology and Food Safety Camp from July 14-18, 2014 for 7th and 8th graders on the LSU campus.

During the camp, students:

  • Constructed a giant microbe.
  • Researched bacteria and made three dimensional models using yarn, Styrofoam, etc.
  • Created food safety recipes cards with food safety tips for each ingredient and step of the recipe. Afterwards, they shared their recipes with other campers!
  • Learned the science of cooking a hamburger.
  • Designed a new package for food and created mock advertisements for their products.
  • Created their own “most unwanted pathogens” poster.
  • Visited a food engineering plant, the LSU Food Science Lab, and a microbiology lab.

The campers went home happy after a fun week learning about food safety and science! Linda has been teaching kids about food safety and science for over 30 years. Thanks for all of the hard work, Linda!
