Encourage your students to learn about the legend and the science behind an American treat—popcorn. They’ll explore popcorn’s role in American myth, the science of a kernel popping, and ways to incorporate this healthful snack into a nutritious diet.
Then get poppin’ on a Popcorn Pep Club Contest project for your school — $10,000 in cash prizes will be awarded to schools, with a grand prize of $2,500. The program runs every year from October 1 through December 31. Start planning your entry today.
