Do Your 8th Graders Have an Appetite for Learning about Food Science?

Here's your school's chance to visit the Wawa Innovation Center for the Future Food Scientist Program! This half-day field trip offers students a behind-the-scene look at careers in food science and how Wawa develops food for its stores. Not only will students participate in fun and interactive stations, but they'll also have a chance to pitch their own recipe to be featured for a limited time at a Wawa store!
