Teacher Farm Experience Program

Australian farms are being transformed by technology.

The Teacher Farm Experience Program aims to increase the knowledge and confidence of STEM, digital technology and agriculture educators to allow them to incorporate food and fibre production into their teaching programs.

This opportunity, including all meals and accommodation, is provided to teachers free of charge thanks to the Rabobank Client Council.
