About the FarmBeats for Students Australia Pilot Program
The FarmBeats for Students program was designed to develop student skills in areas of growth, including Artificial Intelligence, data science and Internet of Things. The program aims to prepare students for modern digital careers across diverse industries.
In 2021, CSIRO partnered with Microsoft to deliver a pilot of this ground-breaking STEM education initiative with real world impact to 397 students from 18 schools across Australia. Participants spoke positively of their experiences, highlighting the opportunity to get hands-on with topics including the cross-disciplinary space of artificial intelligence and the environment.
Applying the skills learned through the program to an open-ended enquiry, students were able investigate solutions to real-world problems using industry resources, such as Climate Services for Agriculture.
