On Monday, Feb. 12, Woman in Science and Engineering welcomed guest speaker Elizabeth, a food scientist.

Elizabeth explained what her job entails, the different places she’s worked and shared tips about how to get into the industry.

“I learned all about food science. It’s a pretty cool field. It’s really interesting, and it’s a lot more in depth than I thought it really was,” Brianna Clarke (11) said.

Some notable moments from the meeting included Elizabeth performing a demonstration on how different certain powdered food colorings look before they’re mixed into a substance, and her passing out Kebler cookies at the end of the meeting after talking about her time working there.

“[My favorite part of the meeting was] the cookies. It was really cool how she explained the process and how she made it. [Food science] is a really cool field, and it’s so fascinating,” Clarke said.
