Secondary students get a taste for wine

Monday, 1 January 2007

Science and technology based agriculture will play a major role in meeting the world’s increasing demand for food, but who will become the next generation of Australian scientists?

The University of Western Australia (UWA) Faculty of Natural and Agricultural Sciences (FNAS) believes the best way to encourage more students into science is to give them a practical arena for their studies, and, with this in mind, set up a viticulture project with secondary schools.

As part of this collaborate project, FNAS this week showcased a small vineyard, at the UWA Shenton Park field station, where students from various secondary schools can utilise the science they learn in the classroom to grow grapes and produce wine.
