ROSALIE Primary School students were offered a taste of the future during a Scitech festival last week.

Run in conjunction with National Science Week, the Future Earth School Festival engaged students about key global sustainability issues.

The aim was to demonstrate the importance of thinking about challenges, including housing and energy, in a fun and exciting way.

Highlights included a tiny house, edible bugs, aquaponics and augmented reality.

More than 2000 students took part in the event.
