What do the students get out of the course?
Nothing can really compare with the sense of accomplishment gained from building your own rod and catching your first fish on it. Students taking the course will be expected to build their very own fishing rod from scratch. For school teachers looking to implement rod building into the classroom, the course also fulfils requirements for Aquatic Practices, Marine and Aquaculture Technology and other Marine Studies based classes. It can also be implemented in technology-based classrooms with a focus on client requirements, design, building and testing. We have great lesson plans and more available for teachers here: RodKits Course Resources Page
