Get into AgSTEM is a free education program, comprised of a suite of workshops. Victorian teachers and school students are the ideal participants. All content links to curricula of the Victorian Curriculum and Assessment Authority.
Fun, hands-on activities are set within the context of Agriculture Victoria’s research projects. By showcasing these innovation initiatives, Get into AgSTEM links studying STEM at school, with high-tech, cross-disciplinary 21st century skills that are relevant to future careers in agriculture.
