High School Students Introduced to Nutrition Education Programs

Students Gardening

High school students helped plant green beans in a CNS educational garden. These were just two of many high school students that participated in the UC Davis Academic Preparation Program where they attended academic enrichment courses in addition to receiving exposure to research at UC Davis.

CNS researchers had the opportunity to talk with the high school students about research in nutrition education, and then conducted a nutrition lesson in the garden to introduce them to the types of nutrition education programs that CNS develops. The students learned about nutrients, planted seeds, harvested vegetables, and prepared the soil for future planting.
