TIME FOR TECH!
STEM is the future for food. It’s never been more important to be knowledgeable on what makes 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. 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 5-10 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 student volunteers are encouraged to offer suggestions that the actors will incorporate into the action. The result is that students have input into the show while watching it!
