Scientists Make Meat – level 1

07-03-2019 15:00

To have meat, you must keep animals. Scientists are trying to change this. They grow meat in a lab.

The scientists are from the Netherlands. They can make a little piece of meat. It is very expensive at the moment. It costs around $12,500. In three years, it will be cheaper. A hamburger made from it will be 12–14 dollars. In seven years, you can buy the meat in a supermarket.

Difficult words: scientist (a very clever person who is an expert in something), lab (a laboratory; a special room for scientists), will (‘in the future’).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
