Discovery Education Joins Up With the White House for ‘Of the People’ Virtual Field Trip

Tomorrow, Discovery Education will take students across the U.S. on a virtual field trip to the White House kitchen as part of the Of the People: Live from the White House webinar series.

During the live virtual event, Sam Kass, Executive Director of Let’s Move! and Senior Policy Advisor for Nutrition Policy, will prepare a healthy snack and discuss the importance of nutrition and healthy choices alongside student co-host, Maurice Morris, a senior at Roosevelt Senior High School in District of Columbia Public Schools.

This unique learning experience will give students across the U.S. the opportunity to explore the food cycle and the significance of the harvest, the benefits of using fresh ingredients in cooking, and the role nutrition plays in their well-being. The interactive event will allow students to submit live questions during the event, and educators will later be able to access a collection of lesson plans and resources that will reinforce the importance of healthy, active lifestyles in and out of the classroom.

Join The White House and Discovery Education on Wednesday, October 29 at 12:00pm EST for an Of the People: Live From The White House virtual field trip with Sam Kass.
