SciFest 2022: Cooking up the Past (Stage 2, Stage 3)

Join Sydney Living Museum to Cook up the Past this National Science Week!


ACTIVITY OUTLINE:

During this virtual program students connect live with a museum educator and explore how food was grown, stored and cooked in the past, in the 1820s kitchen at historic Vaucluse House. During the early years of the New South Wales colony, this grand house was the home of the Wentworth family and their many servants.

Students are introduced to the Wentworth family and their ten children. They think about how the way we grow, store, prepare and eat our food today is similar or different to the way this was done in the past. They will see what’s growing the kitchen garden; investigate how technologies for preparing food have changed from the 19th century to today in the kitchen and dairy; and learn how to make butter, so they can make their own and find out how good it tastes on a piece of bread.

This program describes the effects of changing technology on people’s lives. Step back in time this National Science Week.
