Explore culture, history & ourselves through cooking
Age Group: 8 to 14 years old
Duration: 1 ½ to 3 hours
Global cooking offers children hands on experience with nationals from that country and allows them to deepen cultural and historical understanding of a new country through using five senses, learnings and reflections.
In this program, children will acquire skills necessary for a global change-maker by experiencing and learning about the diversity of the world, gaining global perspectives, stimulating their five senses and taking action.
After participating in “Global Cooking” and become exposed to various different countries, children are expected to recognize themselves as “Young Ambassadors” by embracing the diversity of the world, sharing the knowledge with friends/family, trying to gain further information about that country, and will stand up for the world peace when a country needs help.

The best thing about Global cooking is not just teaching how to cook but also learning the culture and history of each country. As result, she has been developing a worldly outlook and cultural sensitivity. She is really enjoying cooking and learning new culture, she even cooks for her family sharing the recipe she has learned in Global Cooking This becomes one of our family excitement on the weekend.
