Outreach

We provide a range of outreach and teaching materials for senior secondary school students.

Workshops

We hold on-farm workshops throughout the year, highlighting the importance of science to the primary sector. Our workshops are targeted at senior secondary school students, so content is student-centric and links in with their curriculum.   

Check out the available workshops and dates here. 

To register interest for attendance by your class, email Lauren Roberts at [email protected] with class numbers, your preferred date and an alternative date.

Note: Posters for each event, an outline of the day and a link to Google Docs showing availability of spaces. Current workshops are Year 11 Dairy Farming and Sustainability, Year 12 Pest Management, Year 12 Genetics and Year 13 Socio Scientific Issue: Nitrogen Leaching.

 

Teaching resources
