Harrison Students Experience MEC Mobile Food Lab

Students from Harrison’s Washington Avenue School and Harrison Middle School last month had a fun, up-close experience learning to prepare healthy meals on the Meadowlands Environment Center’s Mobile Food Lab.

The program, taught in a converted school bus, encourages healthy eating habits and a curiousity among students in food science and nutrition. The Harrison students learned about the Sense of Taste, the Sense of Smell, created a bird’s nest salad, constructed a Garden in a Bottle and Tested for Vitamin C in Liquids. As you can tell from these videos and photos they had a great time! Thanks to teacher Karen Cristalli for sending these great videos and photos!
