Aquisition of knowledge and skills

Building Bridges 

We learnt that in order to build a successful bridge, we needed to know about the different types of bridges, how they work and understand the forces they must be strong enough to withstand.  

 

We learnt that many bridges uses braces to strengthen and support them. This is often done by using triangular shapes due to the fact they remain rigid and can withstand greater forces than other structural shapes.

Chicken and Fish Wraps

We explored the alternative options to fast food and the nutritional benefits of making better choices. After looking at the health benefits of having salad and proteins in our diet, we began tasting a variety of ingredients. This allowed us the opportunity to know the flavours we were able to incorporate into our wrap recipes. 

When we began making our wraps, we learnt new skills such as how to bread raw meat. We created a glue-like surface with a flour and egg blend which coated the surface of the meat. The breadcrumbs adhered to the surface which created a crispy coating. Keeping in mind health and safety, we needed to keep one hand clean to avoid any cross contamination.
