Soil Science Australia

Soil Science Australia is providing hands on soils fun for kids of all ages who like to dig in, get their hands dirty and explore the world beneath their feet. We will have a series of activities where kids can explore the scientific properties of soil and find out what makes it such a wonderful and important resource for life on earth.

Specifically the stall will feature soil art activities using ochres, an opportunity to feel and learn what makes “good” and “bad” soil, how soils affect plants and food production, information on South Australian soils, and an “Augmented Reality Sandbox” where kids can simulate soil and water landscape processes using their hands.
