    Harper Adams joins NFU Live Lessons 

    Harper Adams University will be joining the NFU to bring farming to children learning at home through their Farm Live lessons. 

    For British Science Week, the NFU has brought together a range of scientific collaborators to showcase the use of technology in modern farming. Exploring a range of STEM projects as well as the work of vets and climate scientists alike, the event offers a chance for students to engage in some different projects while still working towards the National Curriculum. 

    While Harper Adams has been running a number of online events over the last year, including Harper Advance as a source of information regarding Higher Education, this event will bring the future of farming technology to the forefront for a younger audience. 

    Kimberley Chadwick, Outreach Manager at Harper Adams, said: “Harper Adams is excited to be involved with NFU for this project! 

    “We will be hosting a session with two of our colleagues, Research Associate Megan Platt and Senior Lecturer Paula Misiewicz, who will focus on technology within the sector such as robotics and autonomous machinery in farming and some of the exciting things Harper has to offer. 

    “It’s a fantastic opportunity to work with the education team at NFU and we are thoroughly looking forward to the opportunity.” 

    NFU President, Minette Batters, said: “It’s absolutely incredible to see so many students already registered for our Science Farm Live programme. Our education projects and teaching resources have always been incredibly popular among both teachers and pupils, and the swell of enthusiasm for these live lessons is a golden opportunity to put food and farming in front of more children than ever. 

    “These lessons are a fantastic way to give schoolchildren a taste of real-life farming and inspire them about the scientific opportunities within agriculture, while covering key elements within the curriculum.” 

    The free lessons will take place between 8-12 March with the Harper Adams event taking place on 9 March. Join 17,598 students from over 210 schools at our live event by registering here. Information on other Harper Adams events can be found here
