Webinar 2: HEIA/McCormick Flavour Forecast Recipe Challenge

Monday 15 May

Two webinar time slots are offered so you can chose which time slot suits you best.

The HEIA and McCormick Flavour Forecast Recipe Challenge is a real-life design challenge that addresses the Home Economics curriculum. This year, we are again offering another free webinar to provide some additional hints and tips for a successful submission.

Throughout the webinar, you will hear from teachers who have successfully entered and engaged their Year 9 and Year 10 students in the challenge. Participants will also hear what judges are looking for in the entries received, and a representative from McCormick will briefly outline the Flavour Forecast trends.

This webinar is for all teachers: those whose classes have entered previously; those who are thinking that their classes should enter or those who just want to know more about the Challenge. With the added benefit of a certificate for each student who participates in the Challenge and fabulous prizes, join the webinar to find out how your classes can enter the Challenge and address the curriculum.

Please log on to the system at least 15 minutes prior to the start of the webinar and follow the prompts. It is advised that you join using a headset with a speaker; however, the telephone is an alternative option (national call charges apply when using the telephone). Your line will be muted when you join; however, you will have the option of typing a question or ‘raising your hand’ if you wish to speak. The organiser of the event will then unmute your phone.
