Future Experiences in Agriculture, Science and Technology

Future Experiences in Agriculture, Science and Technology (FEAST)

Spend 4 days exploring animal, plant and agricultural science at our Gatton campus.

FEAST is a 4-day residential program that inspires Year 11 and 12 students to pursue study in agriculture, animal and plant science.

You’ll explore agriculture, animal and plant science at our Gatton campus and test drive what it’s like to be a UQ student by taking part in hands-on workshops run by current students and staff.

During the day you’ll explore some of the biggest challenges faced by scientists, including climate change, biosecurity, feeding the world and protecting endangered wildlife. In the evenings you’ll get a taste of life at UQ’s Halls of Residence and take part in social and sporting activities.
