Yesterday, we were in the lab with some high school students looking into soil as part of the Inspiring Science and STEAM Careers day at the Wangaratta Regional Study Centre. Students looked at soil properties and texture, and then made an decision on what crop to plant. We even threw in some economics too!
Thanks to ABC Heywire for sharing our story - and showcasing our new project to highlight the diverse careers in agriculture.

Applications are now open here.
