Are you interested in helping to create the next generation of scientists? In mentoring students as they do real science to solve industry-relevant problems? As our population grows, so will the demand for innovation in food production, renewable fuel sources, and bioproducts to support our growth. Our workshop will train you on our curriculum which teaches students how to do science—solve problems, collect data, drive innovation, develop more sustainable and efficient practices, and discover connections.

Middle and high school agriculture and science teachers, learn about the science of food production and sustainable fuels through engaging activities and lessons related to current science standards. Topics will include:

  • soil health
  • biotechnology
  • water quality
  • fermentation
  • populations

All participants will receive 7 hours of professional development credit as well as a foldscope and a fermentation kit.  Sponsored in part by the National Corn Growers Association.
