High School Open Evening


Food came under the microscope as Hethersett High School and Science College held its eighth public science open evening. 

Practical demonstrations, displays of pupils’ work and talks with a food theme were the order of the evening as the school’s science and food and technology departments combined. 

The evening started with warming soup in the school kitchen before the public were given insights into, amongst other things, making bread and butter and fizzy drinks using sodium bicarbonate. 

“Your Food Under the Microscope” also included presentations from Kevin Stickney, pig product manager for Harbro Ltd entitled “Your Food’s Food” and Stephen Brown from British Sugar on “Sugar Beet: From Field to Product.” 

Pupils work on display looked at the fluctuation in food prices, the comparison between organic and pesticide controlled crops, the affect that rising fuel prices has on food production, a survey carried out at the Royal Norfolk Show on animal welfare and an investigation into the importance of a balanced diet. There was also instructions on how to make the perfect Yorkshire Pudding – about four inches high with a light and fluffy texture and crisp exterior. 

The evening was accompanied by a booklet of recipes put together by members of staff.
