‘I’m a Waverley Student Get Me Outta Here’ Challenge
This week, our Year 10 Food Technology students participated in an ‘I’m a Waverley student, get me outta here’ challenge. They were exposed to various foods which relate to Teaching and Learning Programs studied over the Stage 5 course. Students accumulated points if they ate/drank the food and for justifying which unit it could be associated with.
Foods included kangaroo (Food in Australia), astronauts’ ice cream (Food for specific needs), Halloween jelly eyeballs (Food for special occasions), plant based ‘chicken’ (Food trends) and edible bugs such as dry roasted crickets and mealworms (Food Equity and Food selection and health).
Points were deducted if students took too long to eat the food or if they spat it out. Great fun was had by all.
