Rose and Don Petersen Hands-on Learning Lab
Students at the Gesell Institute now have a
space where they can learn about the importance of food from growing their own garden to preparing meals in a kitchen.
Education is made fun when taught through foods. The Rose and Don Petersen Hands-On Learning Lab promotes positive growth through activities such as:
- writing and following recipes
- measuring ingredients
- exploring the science of growing foods
- creating food-related artwork
- experiencing new foods
- learning about healthy eating and the farm-to-school movement
Rose '57 and Don Petersen were instrumental in the recent redesign of the Gesell Institute
at the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point and creating the Rose and Don
Petersen Hands-on Learning Lab.
