Celebrating the National Science Week 2021 Schools Theme:

Food: Different by Design!


STEM is the future for food. It’s never been more important to be knowledgeable on what  takes food technology tick, from sustainable agriculture to innovation to biosecurity.


Time for Tech explores how the more we know about food science and technology, the more we can solve problems in everyday life. Celebrating the National Science Week 2021 School Theme: Food: Different by Design, students will learn all about sustainable agriculture and laboratory-developed foods as well as its (sometimes unintended) consequences, and so be better informed about STEM, career pathways and how we can all do our bit to support the planet.

And how are we going to do that? With comedy of course!

The show consists of four interactive science sketches that centre on different aspects of food technology. Students in grades 5-9 will learn about sustainable agriculture, the link between food technology and innovation, how technology helps design creative food solutions, and biosecurity in a COVID impacted world. Throughout, audience members and volunteers are encouraged to offer suggestions that the actors will incorporate into the action. The result is that students get to have input in the show while watching it.



The livestream performance is hosted by our Actor/Educator and includes interactive segments for students to answer quizzes, have guided discussions and ask questions in real time!


The performance is captured live-on-film with multi-cameras and in high definition, meaning everyone will be watching from the best seat in the house. Hosting a Perform Education Livestream Incursion means your whole school can be involved whether having a large group viewing, classroom by classroom sessions, or even with individual students included from home.


The session includes an interactive Q&A with the live host for your students to explore some of the themes and key questions connected to the learning points.


With your personal school link, the livestream performance will be available for your whole school to watch on the date/time of your scheduled incursion.

The Livestream e-learning package also includes a range of hands-on educational tools with online interactive games, quizzes, videos and lesson plans for the classroom and at home to extend the engagement and learning, all available for the entire school year!

Was a very entertaining way to teach so many STEM concepts and scientific fact. Students were engaged and the content supported classroom learning. Students were discussing possible future opportunities after the presentation.
