About this event
Have you ever wondered what soil can actually tell us?
Join the Queensland Chief Scientist and a panel of experts as we introduce you to our State Soils Collection and dig into the mysteries beneath our feet.
The panel will discuss:
– Digitising the State Soils Collection, digital data and mapping initiatives. What does this involve and what does it mean for researchers and the community?
– How the collection is managed and stored. Why do we have an archive?
– Local agriculture and farming trials and what has been found
– Science education and careers
We will also be showcasing some of our soils collection for you to see!
