Running Time: Self-paced*

As students partake in this unique interactive dining experience they are presented a menu filled with special, yet common foods to most teenage palates. Each element of the cuisine is derived from genetically modified organisms to some degree. Students select a meal based on their tastes and when it’s presented at their table, information about each GMO-influenced ingredient pops up to satiate their thirst for learning about this topic. If time allows, students can continue to order  meals until they’ve exhausted all menu options.
