Episode 48: Mochi

This episode introduces the Saisiyat’s traditional food, mochi. Through a demonstration of the traditional way to scrape mochi off the pestle, the kids understand the destructive force of pressure. They were also encouraged to use the seemingly weak cotton to cut through different objects with friction and heat.
