Lauren Boop

Project Name:

‘Egg’Static About Salmonella Research

Ms. Boop will work with Dr. Hosni Hassan, NC State; Dr. Matt Koci, NC State; Dr. Andrea Azcarte-Peril, UNC-Chapel Hill; and Amy Chilcote and Autumn Guin, 4-H to translate laboratory research on Salmonella into a more “digestible” form.

Her work will help give other teachers, students and informal educational audiences an increased understanding of food-borne illness and the necessary precautions that must be taken to prevent its outbreak.

After her time in the laboratory and during the second year of the project, she will work with fellow educators and the 4-H Youth and Volunteer Development Department at N.C. State University to create a curriculum for K-12 classrooms and informal educational environments.
