Stemettes are delivering free workshops for Year 10-13 students for this academic year with ADM (a leader in global nutrition). These will bring together the science of food and nutrition with computational skills and coding.
Who is it for?
The workshop is for girls and non-binary students in Years 10-13. They can accommodate up to 30 students in a workshop and will need access to a computer room for this session (if one is not available just let them know so they can organise for laptops to be sent to the school ahead of the session).
They’re delivering this half-day workshop from January to December 2023. You can select your preferred dates on the application form and they will build the day around your regular school hours to avoid disruption to other classes and break times.
What does the workshop look like?
The session will be a hands-on workshop. They will be teaching the students HTML and will give them the tools and resources to build a webpage around food sustainability and nutrition. They will tailor the session to the level of the students in the session. Towards the end of the session, the students will present their work to the class, building on their presentation skills and public speaking.
