11 Yr. Old TED Presentation: What’s Wrong With Our Food System

“With almost unnerving precociousness, 11-year-old Birke Baehr explains the problems with our industrialized and corporate food production systems, and makes the case that we should all eat organic and local. If you weren’t already convinced that sustainable is the way to go with your food, have a listen to Birke – he’s quite passionate!.” (Source: Edutopia)

About Birke

“At age 9, while traveling with his family and being “roadschooled,” Birke Baehr began studying sustainable and organic farming practices such as composting, vermiculture, canning and food preservation. Soon he discovered his other passion: educating others — especially his peers — about the destructiveness of the industrialized food system, and the alternatives…Baehr volunteers at the Humane Society and loves working with animals.” (Source: TED Talks)

The Race: Apple vs. Snickers

I ran across this video this morning and found it to be an interesting way to introduce the topic of nutrition and healthy snacking. I applaud the students that created this video for 1) their creativity, 2) writing an interesting and informative script, and 3) acknowledging the works of others that were included in this video.

It’s exciting to see students authoring and publishing their own works as part of the learning process.
