2013: Hanna Mosca


Formerly the 2013 Science Education and Research intern, Hanna is now working to develop and teach the From the Ground Up high school program as part of the Museums Connect program, made possible by the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs and administered by the American Alliance of Museums. Phipps is partnering with the Gidan Makama Museums in Kano, Nigeria to provide an immersive experience for 15 local high school students in each city. Participating students will learn about nutrition, cooking and cultural food traditions by following local food from farm to table and will be communicating with students at their partner institutions. This project will last from September to June, resulting in the creation of a community cookbook that will be designed and created by participating students.

Hanna is currently a graduate student in the Food Studies program at Chatham University. Hanna has her Bachelor of Individualized Studies from the University of Minnesota in Sustainability Studies, Social Justice and Gender Studies. Prior to coming to Phipps, she served for two years as an AmeriCorps VISTA coordinating a high school internship program focused on urban gardening and conservation. She has also coordinated and taught at multiple edible school gardens in the Twin Cities.
