Thesis title: “Development of a Source Material in Food Dehydration Craft Technology for the Secondary Schools”
The research study’s objective is to link the concepts from science, technology and home economics to reinforce each other making them academically complimentary. The study aims to give the teachers added knowledge in food science that they can later impart to students. Students, in turn can make informed career choices in food sciences, food craft technology and entrepreneurship.
In the education sector, a new learning concept can be infused by the Makabayan teacher in the present curricula with possible adjustments in the technology subjects so as to fit in the load hours needed to complete the course outline to be made. The Department of Education can pilot-test in one area similar to what is being done in the high school department of the Central Luzon State University in Nueva Ecija wherein food dehydration, management process and industrial arts are incorporated in its integrated technology subjects.
