STEM Hour: Connect, learn, grow
Exploring Bush Tucker
What comes to mind when we think about Australian cuisine? There are few things more Aussie than meat pies and the good old barbie. In our July webinar, we will celebrate food that has been here for thousands of years, much longer than the sausage sizzle: Bush Tucker.
Join us on a journey back in time when wattle seed, river mint and kakadu plum nourished generation after generation. Dharawal Elder Aunty May, Curator Life Sciences Scott Pullyblank, Environmental Educator Damian Stirling, and Louise Reid, Educator at Family Day Care Children’s Services ‘The Who’ in Cairns will share ideas on how to include native plants in inquiry-based STEM learning in early childhood settings and discuss why we don’t see more native foods commercially available.
Date: 16 July 2021
Time: 11am - 12pm AEDT
