AusBN – AgForce has partnered with a local science club to educate children about the science behind farming.
Over a period of five-weeks the children learnt about topics including soil science, cotton research, growing mushrooms and beef production.
The lessons took place at the Central Highlands Science centre.
Australian Beef Industry Foundation board director Bronwyn Roberts spoke at one of the classes.
She said: "It's never too early to try and attract them, but I'd say we've probably got some budding scientists here."
Lisa Caffery, chairperson of the Central Highlands Science Centre, added: "Next year we will change it up, we'll have five different topics.
"Living in a rural and regional location it is mad that we don't know more about agricultural science, so why wouldn't we include it?
"It's fun, it's hands on, it's practical and the kids get to learn something they don't learn at school.
"This is the way of making children excited about science."
