Today we joined a Journey 2050 excursion (field trip) hosted by Calgary Stampede.
Journey 2050 is developed by Nutrien in Canada as an education program that explores agriculture asking students 'how will we sustainably feed 10 billion people by 2050?' The program includes an online game available globally, guest speakers across North America, and field trips and incursions around Calgary.

Ag Tech STEAM
Yesterday we met Luke Silinski, founder of Ag Tech STEAM, along with his Mum, Shanyn.
Luke, a high school student himself, has developed free ag tech education boxes filled with STEAM activities for teachers and schools. They introduce coding and ag tech to students to educate them about agriculture and showcase the options for a future in the industry.
And... there's LEGO! As Luke uses LEGO to showcase soil profiles and build robotics, and highlight ag tech.
Bag packed and ready to go!
We're sharing more in-depth reflections of our Nuffield Australia journey here.
The Big Banana
We've made it back to NSW!
Shoutout to Big Banana providing a great photo opportunity, and even a #thelegofarmer prop stand!
Today we've been learning all about Australia's very own macadamias at Macadamias Australia in Bundaberg!
These ones are a while off harvest, but when they are ready they will then be dehusked, dried, and then cracked, leaving the delicious macadamia. Despite being a softer nut to eat, macadamias are the hardest nut to crack!
