Phenomenom resources (MT21018)
What's it all about?
This investment is developing Phenomenom resources for the avocado, citrus, melon and rubus industries, including a dedicated Nomcast for each commodity and supporting PDF resources. The materials will educate children about the nutritional benefits of horticultural produce with the intention of improving their attitudes towards consumption.
Phenomenom is an existing education project consisting of webisodes and podcasts, supported by curriculum-aligned resources available free to teachers of years 2-10 to use in class. The primary aim is to improve attitudes to fresh foods among children, appealing to them that eating fresh Aussie produce can be smart, fun, and exciting.
The resource embeds vegetable, fruit, nut and seed education across Australian subject areas of science and technology, English, the arts, health and physical education, maths and humanities.
