The ABC of Science, Technology, Engineering & Maths in Food Production (ABC STEM in Food Production) has been produced for science week (17-23 March 2014) but it can be used at any time so don’t worry if your science week is already over flowing with science! This will give you a taste of the experience of having a farm yard in your classroom – but without the muck and without the smells!
The ABC STEM in Food Production gives the ABC’s of the part science, technology, engineering & maths play in modern food production. See how Bees, Cows, Digestion, Evolution, Fermentation….. Interactive screen and Lasers play a part in modern food production.
Use ABC STEM in Food Production in your classroom, assemblies, either as one medium learning bite or in small daily bites!
How it will work with Twitter
We will tweet each of the ABC’s over 5 days as a series of questions or tasks to find out what the next letter will stand for.To help with your planning we will post this first thing in a morning before 9am so that are all available whenever and however you want to use them.
Each days learning bites will end with a video giving all the days letters with up close and personal images of the science, technology, pigs, cows, and machines involved in the production of our food.
DON’T TWEET – DON’T WORRY:
Don’t worry if your school does not tweet or you are worried about the use of social media with young pupils we will put the tweets safely on our website so you can safely introduce your class to social media. Like this
