        Could Eating Insects Solve World Hunger?

        Learn about a source of protein made from insects in this video from SciTech Now. The need for efficient, environmentally-friendly ways to feed a growing population has led some people to research entomophagy, which refers to eating insects. Students at Cornell University have developed a food product made of mealworm protein known as C-fu. They see C-fu as one solution to the problem of global hunger and malnutrition.

        The support materials include a graphic organizer, discussion questions, and an infographic activity.
