    North Carolina- Second: Smoothie Challenge

    At Out Teach, we empower teachers and students to go outside expectations with the power of experiential
    learning. What makes us unique is our ability to help teachers engage students with new content using
    academic standards they already teach. Through our partnership with Sprouts Farmers Markets, this model
    was developed to address important nutrition education content.

    Nutrition content, extensions and standards (where applicable) are integrated and taught through the lens of
    existing English/Language Arts, Math and Science standards making it easier to fit into a busy school day.
