Battle of the Food Scientists

February 15, 2023
5:00 PM

Food Innovation Center - 1901 N. 21st St., Lincoln, NE 68588
What is the contest? 

Teams of 2-4 students compete to prepare the best food products within specific parameters provided at the start of the contest. Food products have ranged from chicken entrees to chocolate chip cookies to a batch of peanut butter. Each contest has surprises that add to the challenge, whether its a mystery ingredient, a recipe with missing measurements, a food safety test, or preparing the product according to the standard of identity. The fun is in the challenge!

Our theme this year is Baked Goods!
