Agriculture Science and Careers6th-8th Grade
Our middle school program will give students a sense of the vast amount of science that is involved in agriculture. As 1 out of every 4 students will enter an ag-related career, this presentation will allow participants to identify the jobs in environmental science, animal science, food science, technology and business. This presentation walks students through activities to understand the use of ag by-products to produce everyday items such as corn plastics, soy car parts and manure pots. Includes a short laboratory exercise requiring teacher assistance.
