During British Science Week 2021, the NFU Education team examined the science behind the food that you eat and the thousands of people involved in its production.
Over 200,000 students joined us in exploring the Great British countryside and meeting the people who look after its landscapes, animals, and farms. But if you didn't get to see, or if you just want to watch again, then look no further. Watch the lessons again, and discover how British farmers are producing food for the planet while caring for our natural environment and innovating for the future.
Join sheep farmer Sioned on a quad bike tour of her farm to help us consider how sheep are adapted to their environment and how humans play a role in adaptation through breeding. Also, you'll have a front row seat to watch some live lambing from the comfort of your own home.
Become a trainee vet for an hour and assist Theeb the farm vet, as he checks that the farmer's cows are happy and healthy.
Can you answer the age-old question, which came first, the chicken or the egg? Join Deb to find out where eggs come from, how they develop into chickens and how newborn chicks are cared for. Not only that, but you can watch chicks hatching too!
Journey into the farm of the future, and take a look at how robots can solve some of farming’s biggest challenges. How can we improve soil health? How can we make growing crops more efficient? How can we farm areas that weren’t suitable for growing crops before?
