On Wednesday 4 August, students will celebrate our CSS Science Week and National Science Week with an opportunity to participate in the science education show: Street Science. The 2021 Street Science Show will explore the topic “The Future of Foods". Students will be amazed, entertained and informed as science educators show them how to launch flying potatoes, use mushroom spores to create a magic show, and plate up some future foods designed in the lab! Students will walk away with a greater understanding and wonderment of how the food industry has evolved over the years, from its humble beginnings in farms right into the realms of science fiction.
This gastronomic extravaganza has been designed and specifically tailored to align with the Australian Curriculum and 2021 National Science Week. Students will gain valuable insights about healthy eating habits and how they can meet their nutritional needs in a variety of ways.
