What's it all about?

Do you like food?  Do you like being outside? In our world of science at Wintec, we love investigating the things around us and there are two major areas that are important to us: the food we put into our bodies and the environment we live in. The science STAR course is a great opportunity to explore the puzzles of food and environmental science with fun, hands on experiments and will help you discover the great applications that Wintec science has on offer.

  • Get outdoors:  conduct experiments in the field and collect specimens
  • Take a closer look:  investigate microbes and insects under the microscope to investigate their impact on the environment
  • Change colours:  get a look at how colours are used as food additivies and their impact on sensory perception
  • Make gummy worms:  by using amazing food chemistry (molecular gastronomy) techniques
  • Dissect something squishy:  just what we dissect is a surprise on the day!
