Training the next generation of Stink Bug Hunters
This week KiwiFruit Vine Health (KVH) helped bring biosecurity alive for groups of intermediate students taking part in the Creepy Crawlies Meets Primary Production project.
For two field-days, students were introduced to kiwifruit and avocados as great industries and future career options and were shown science and technology at work. Grading and packing, checking out pests under microscopes, and learning about drone spraying taught students what it takes to produce and sell an export crop. These activities were built on Curious Minds modules developed by Scion and House of Science.
