Where pupils set out to discover different kinds of food by preparing a full meal which they then eat together.
Split into two groups, the pupils spend a hands-on morning full of surprises: While some concoct a recipe with our chefs, the others improve their knowledge of food and nutrition in our themed interactive discovery areas, supervised by their teacher. Then, the two groups swap over giving each child the chance to prepare their own dish. At lunch time, everyone gets together around the table to share the meal, the highlight of a fun-packed morning.
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:
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.
