The Year 10 Prac and Science Aggies are getting involved in the University of New England’s “Soil Your Undies” project and already they have had some great laughs while learning!
‘Soil Your Undies’ is a citizen science campaign run by UNE and Cotton Australia that explores soil health and allows participants to share their experiences. For the challenge, the Aggies received a pair of 100% white cotton undies to bury in topsoil for two months. Along the way, the students will be learning about soil pH, texture and overall health. At the end of the two months, the undies will be retrieved, photographed and the level of decomposition recorded. If the undies have decomposed significantly, there is good biological activity which indicates healthy soil!
