Food Technology/Hangarau Kai at MMI happens in our wonderful, recently refurbished room. The students are taught to work safely and hygienically with practical, hands-on activities to learn about the language, symbols and text used in the recipes, how to measure ingredients using different utensils, how to manage themselves within a given time and at the same time, develop ideas using planning and problem solving skills.
Students also gain an understanding of the properties of ingredients used and its affect on the product, whilst also growing in confidence and independence so that they may be inspired to safely prepare and cook food for you at home! And yes, cleaning up is part of the process too!
They will be equipped with the knowledge to make wise food choices now and in the future.
Students may also opt into an enviro/ gardening extension group to further understand sustainable foods.
