Student Help

Students from around the world write to foodscience.com to ask technical questions which we do not have the capability of answering. However, many of the professors in Food Science academic programs have offered to answer these questions. One professor has even offered assistance in evaluating high school level science projects! If you are in junior high, high school, or college, please feel free to e-mail any of the professors below to ask your questions about food science or their food science program. They would love to hear from you.

Also listed are a few sites where students can access research materials, and can communicate with other food science students, both undergraduate and graduate level.
