Hot Science - Cool Talks
Hot Science - Cool Talks is presented by the Environmental Science Institute (ESI). This nationally recognized Outreach Series provides a means for leading researchers from the University of Texas and other prominent universities to communicate their research to the public in general and the K-12 educational community in particular.
TxEEE was proud to coordinate and manage another successful Food+City Challenge Prize on February 4th, 2017 that attracted over 800 people. The Prize experience kicked off on Feb. 2 with sold-out Jeffersonian Dinners and wrapped up on Feb. 4 with our top winners being announced and many tasty treats donated by local vendors. UT Professor of Natural Sciences and Human Ecology, Dr. Robyn Metcalfe, is the founder and director of Food+City, an international startup competition that encourages innovation in the urban food system. The Food+City mission is focused on educating people on the complex supply chain that keeps food on our tables. This education provides awareness of food issues, encourages and motivates innovative food systems research, and supports startups that leverage university research. This is a truly holistic approach to the problematic food supply chain.
During the Food+City Challenge Prize, finalist teams compete against each other through their three-minute pitches, exhibition tables, and pre-prepared marketing materials. Competitors gain applicable knowledge from team-specific mentors who coach them along the way. Insightful funders also provide guidance to competitors. In this supply chain story, it’s a happy ending where everyone has a rewarding experience.
