Spark curiosity in your classroom

We can't wait for school to be in person again - but until then, we've cooked up a virtual field trip that is free, fun, and learning standards aligned.

Your students will join Chip, an undercover food detective, as they investigate the secret world of food and solve mysteries by reading labels and ingredient lists.
