Digital Learning Week
January 25, 2013
In FoodCraft, youth participants will explore the science and politics of food through playing the video game, Minecraft (no previous experience required), and the new AMNH exhibit Our Global Kitchen: Food, Nature, Culture. More specifically, challenges to food production, preparation, trade, and transportation will be encountered in historical and present day simulations, such as a pre-Columbian Aztec marketplace, illustrating the vital and complex role that food plays in our lives.
Our Global Kitchen: Food, Nature, Culture was organized by the American Museum of Natural History, New York (amnh.org).
