Farm Walk and Talk 2016 - A huge success

Highlights video containing some of the best bits from this years Farm Walk and Talk series.

Agricultural Science students from 80 schools across Ireland donned their wellies and took to the fields for interactive learning, as part of Agri Aware’s Farm Walk and Talk series.

Some 2,500 urban and rural second level students took the opportunity to visit Teagasc colleges and research centres across the country, to gain some real-life experience on working farms. They also had the chance to listen to talks from leading experts in the Irish agri-food industry.

This year, Agri Aware's Farm Walk and Talk series coincided with the release of the new DRAFT Agricultural Science specification for Leaving Certificate students. Chief Executive of Agri Aware, Dr. Vanessa Woods, and her former Chairman, Mr. Bernard Donohue, initiated this whole process and they had a formal role on the National Council for Curriculum and Assessment (NCCA) Development Group to deliver this new industry-relevant specification.

Through curriculum-linked educational and exploratory tours at Teagasc Agricultural Colleges and Research Centres, students are given the opportunity to learn about a variety of elements of farming life e.g. the dairy, beef, sheep, pigs, poultry and crops sectors.

The primary objective of Agri Aware’s Farm Walk and Talk is to expose students to the reality of Agricultural Science and give students a better understanding of the practicalities of agriculture. In addition, students have the opportunity to get advice from third level agricultural lecturers.
