New: The Mornings in the JuniorAcademy workshops now follow the PER curriculum!
From January 2019, the morning workshops for school groups will offer the choice of four topics in line with the PER curriculum (Plan d’Études Romand). These new topics allow pupils to put the basic concepts of nutrition education seen in class into practice, hands-on while having fun. Teachers choose the topic of the workshop when making the booking:
What exactly does responsible consumption mean? Why should we consume food in season? How can we limit waste? Should we eat organic produce? Why should we favour locally produced food? These are just some of the questions addressed over the course of the morning, raising pupils’ awareness of the impact our food choices have on the world around us.
Pupils, under the responsibility of their teacher and accompanied by one of our staff, will visit the greengrocer’s Côté Potager (50 metres from the Alimentarium, on the same side of the road).
This is an enlightening and educational outing to select quality local produce as ingredients for the meal.
If the school refuses this short excursion, the children can continue to enjoy the JuniorAcademy games area.
