Feed Your Mind, Feed The World Camp
Learn how science is solving real world challenges
Feed your mind, feed the world is a three day camp experience for Year 11 and 12 students wanting to learn about exciting career opportunities in agricultural science.
The camp is held 7-9 December 2015.
Studies in agriculture at the University of Tasmania will empower you to address the hardest challenge humanity has ever faced: how to sustainably feed a world population that is increasing by around 200,000 people every day.
The demand for highly skilled agricultural science graduates is huge – and growing. Each year there are around 800 agricultural science graduates with a staggering 5,000 jobs available.
No other degree offers virtual certainty of employment after graduation: demand for agricultural graduates outstrips supply by 4:1.
Whether you choose to include agriculture units within another degree or to make it your major, you’ll find that studying agriculture at the University of Tasmania opens doors to a practical, interesting and sometimes delicious world of new options.
The camp is held in beautiful north-west Tasmania by the University of Tasmania’s School of Land and Food, which is responsible for teaching agricultural science.
The accommodation is at Camp Clayton in Ulverstone where we will have exclusive use of the facility for the two nights. Students will share dormitories and all meals are provided.
Each day we will visit a diverse selection of agriculture industries, many of whom are national and international leaders in their field and are employing agricultural graduates.
The camp is free to attend and open to students who have an interest in agricultural, biological and environmental science and would like to see the exciting and rewarding careers available to those who study agriculture at the University of Tasmania.
