Dr. Rogers is engaged in a project with North High School in Minneapolis called 'Next Steps in Reshaping North Minneapolis Local Food System'. The project is a collaboration with the school, with the goals of linking STEM education with food systems knowledge, promoting healthy eating, and creating a pathway to the University for North High students. The collaboration has resulted in multiple lab modules for the school, an aquaponics production system and celebratory events to promote environmental consciousness & improved food attitudes, such as Earth Day & World Food Day.
