About FEAST

Future Experiences in Agriculture, Science and Technology (FEAST) is a four-day residential program to inspire high school students about rewarding science careers in the agriculture, animal, plant and food industries.

FEAST is open to students in years 11 and 12 and is held each June/July at UQ Gatton.

By participating in FEAST you’ll get to:

  • test-drive university and meet other students with similar interests
  • explore science disciplines through hands-on activities and workshops
  • meet UQ students and staff and attend industry-run sessions
  • experience living in the UQ Halls of Residence and take part in social and sporting activities
  • expand your knowledge of UQ Science study options and programs
  • learn about current challenges faced by scientists, including climate change, biosecurity, feeding the world and protecting endangered wildlife.

Numbers are limited, and due to high demand, you can only attend FEAST once.
