Year 9 Food Technology

Throughout Year 9 you will complete two food projects; Street Food and the STEM Project.

Street Food Project:

In this project you will build and expand on the skills you gained in years 7 and 8 through weekly practicals. You will also learn about healthy eating, diet and fitness, diet related health issues, different types of staple foods, food evaluation and the science behind Meringues.

The practicals you will complete include:

Paella

Chicken Chow Mein

Lasagne

Lemon Meringue Tartlets

A Street Food dish of your own choice

Muffins

STEM Project:

In the STEM project you will make and build an ice cream cone holder using scientific principles and mathematics. You will then make your own homemade ice cream (of your own flavour) and homemade waffle cones and serve this in your cone stand. The project will help you understand the importance of Science, Mathematics and Technology within Food Technology.
