Students design an individual experiment on a factor affecting plant growth. They conduct an experiment to collect relevant data for a written report. Students explore a breakthrough agricultural technology with a focus on Science as Human Endeavour for a poster presentation. Students also investigate integrated pest management practices and prepare an oral presentation on managing a pest found in Australian agriculture industries. They assess feed availability in the paddocks and calculate feed budgets.

Students may need to purchase specific materials for their experiments if they are not available at school. This would only occur if the experiment proposed is realistic and achievable after a discussion with the teacher.
