Cheese Clubs

Welcome to the UEN Cheese Science Club toolkit! Whether you are an interested citizen or a high school student, food science is a wonderful way to add excitement to the classroom, your stomach and your life. The main objectives of the Cheese Science Clubs are: to encourage leadership, to allow Utah citizens a fuller understanding of the scope of food (cheese), science and technology, and to expand awareness of the field of food and science in our daily lives and throughout our community. This toolkit contains everything you will need to gather students, friends, or colleagues to create a Cheese Science Club.
