​The second iteration of the Earth Smarties sustainability curriculum delivery model last week won a national sugar cane industry award.  The Earth Smarties model, developed by teachers Linda Venn and Colleen Way in 2010, was used to engage eleven schools in the Ingham area in a real-life science project.  Almost 160 students monitored the biotic and abiotic parameters of water quality in creeks near their schools, paralleling a similar district project involving cane growers, graziers and fishers.
