Soy's role in feeding the world
How can soybean products help solve world hunger? After attending the summer Ag Biotech Academy workshop, that’s the question Penta Career Center teacher David Stacklin presented to his freshman Agriculture, Food and Natural Resources (AFNR) class. Watching a video that graphically represented deaths from hunger helped them see the extent of the problem. He said students were previously unaware of soy’s nutritional value and the variety of ways it can be used to fight hunger. Stacklin found the workshop “helpful in explaining all of the uses of soybeans,” and he said this lesson encouraged his students to consider their role in the issue of world hunger.
