Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Miss M. Brown

Recommended Prior Learning

Having taken Food Product Development in Level 1 is advantageous but not required.

Project: Super food or Super fad?

Learners will research some of the “superfoods” that have become very popular over recent years. Are they really “super” and do the products do what they say they will?   Following the technology design process, you will create a Superfood Snack that would appeal to active teenagers using your own creativity and experimentation with new ideas.
