Learning from the Folk Wisdom
On September 6, 2014, the juniors of Agro-Industry in both majors (Food technology program and Technology management of agricultural produces and packaging program) visited two local learning centers in Chiang Rai.
The team led by Aj. Natthawuddhi Donlao and the staff visited the Pang Lao Learning Center in the morning session to learn the folk wisdom of making Northern-style rice crackers (Khao Tan).
