The Yabby Unit

Back to results

This unit of work provides students with the opportunity to investigate the importance of aquaculture production to our society through focusing on Australian freshwater crayfish production. The Yabby unit of work consists of four resources including a workbook, answer guide, and two major design folios.

The unit includes guides for practical activities, in-class extension investigations, mini design projects which will challenge student understanding and prepare them to complete one of two major projects for the unit to design and build an aquaponics system and then automate it using control technologies.


Additional activities suggested in conjunction with this unit involve students growing, managing and making observations on aquaponic plants and freshwater crayfish.

The unit is designed to cover outcomes from the NSW Technology Mandatory stage 4 Syllabus context areas Agricultural technologies, Engineered systems and Digital technologies.
