THEO VISITS AMERICA
From Tuesday, February 28 to Thursday, March 2, 2017, 9.30 am to 0.30 pm
Theo the Magic Ink Blot will once again this year be inviting children to try out recipes from around the world. As a jovial adventurer in the educational module “The Earth My Home,” he and his primary schoolchildren friends will discover the planets and explore the challenges of the global digital revolution. In joint internet-based instruction, second- to fourth-graders will talk with partner classes from other countries about a variety of themes, including healthy but delicious nutritional options. The big reveal of favorite meals will be coming this time from children in the USA. The Berlin mini-chefs will snip, hack, grate, stir and season under the watchful eye of a pro chef. A cooking studio tailored to their needs will be set up at Park Center Treptow, providing them the chance to prepare a Cajun-style veggie stir-fry. During the tasting, they’ll be able to Skype with friends from abroad and determine whether it’s the kind of dish they’d like to eat more often. The cooking course will also put a focus on the right to healthy foods. The educational module helps children understand the earth as an equal opportunity home for all people. Even the youngest participants can explore questions of transport distances, water consumption and waste disposal in the agricultural and food industries and become aware of the importance of regional products. Ingredients like celery and onions will of course be coming from the surrounding region. The shared meal will finish up with a smoothie made from Brandenburg apples and carrots. The project is supported by the Park Center Treptow and real.- markt Berlin-Treptow.
