ALP – Real Food, Real Science

Woodlands Secondary’s Real Food, Real Science is a STEM Applied Learning Programme that exposes students to authentic everyday food-related matters and the Food Science & Technology industry. It provides opportunities for students to learn about industry-standard techniques. The Secondary One students specialise in learning about molecular gastronomy techniques. The Secondary Two students focus on the use of Arduino programming applied to Food Science.

Students will also have opportunities to participate in activities such as Learning Journeys, workshops, and job-shadowing, conducted in collaboration with industry partners.
In Real Food, Real Science, students take part in a range of active, hands-on learning experiences which are authentic, process-focused, and integrate the various skills and knowledge they learnt throughout their ALP journey. 

ALP Signature Drink

For our 35th Speech Day, ALP students applied the molecular gastronomy techniques and exercised their creativity to create a Signature Drink for Woodlands Secondary.  Our Signature Drink takes on the vibrant colours of the school. It is a refreshing concoction which melds the flavours of fruit and tea innovatively using selected molecular gastronomy techniques. The drink is a subtle, blue-coloured camomile tea, layered with pineapple cordial. As finishing touches, mango spheres and the school flag garnish the drink.
