A wool promotion using modified shipping containers in schools is in hot demand.

The Wool Shed inspires students to be creative and curious about new uses for an abundant, natural and locally produced fibre.

Project manager Vicki Linstrom said kids are keen to learn about a biodegradable, sustainable product and are well aware there is no Planet B.

The Wools in School programme was originally aimed at intermediate pupils but is also going out to younger and older students.

Primary schools are booking it for technology and science classes while high schools have adopted it for business, economics and agri classes.
