Wine Australia and SASTA : Genetics and Food Chemistry

*Note- this is the second workshop in our Wine Australia Series. You can still attend if you didn't attend the first workshop. It is available to both primary and secondary teachers.

This workshop is aimed at teachers who want a fresh and innovative approach to teaching Biological Sciences and Chemistry.

Using grape vine management (viticulture) as the theme, we are able to teach science content such as Grape genetics, phenotypic characteristics in relation to soil science and food chemistry. All of this with a context that applies to so many regional and rural families around South Australia within the wine industry. 

You will receive ideas for several activities, experiments and fair test investigations, learning resources to take home to help you get started in the classroom.

Both Primary and Secondary teachers are welcome as this can be considered modular, allowing flexiblity to meet your teaching needs.

Presenter: Dr Bianca Warnock of SASTA, on behalf of Wine Australia

Morning Sessions: Genotype vs Phenotype in the context of a vineyard

  • Activities 
  • Learning outcomes
  • Experiment preparation
  • Fair Test Investigation

Lunch and meet and *potential greet with researchers (yet to be confirmed)

Afternoon Session: Food Chemistry

  • Understanding sensory habits
  • Identifying the relationship between genetics, terroir and taste
  • Epigenetics
  • Writing SHE questions – how to effectively use articles + how to structure them

Please note this session is at the Education Development Centre, Hindmarsh.
