This is the 2nd year for the virtual Ag+STEM Camp! Purdue Agriculture PK-12 Council is excited to offer this event in conjunction with Spring Fest. Drs. Hui-Hui Wang and Neil Knobloch co-teach a course called Teaching STEM Through Agriculture, Food and Natural Resources.  Students in this course will be teaching virtual Ag+STEM Lessons the week of April 4-7, 2022 leading up to Spring Fest.

College students developed these virtual lessons as part of their course assignment and would appreciate feedback from K-12 students and families who participate in their lessons. Each lesson is 45 minutes in length. You can register for as many lessons as you wish by clicking on the link. A zoom link will be emailed to you after you register. Recordings will be available after the live lessons are taught. Although the lessons may require a few resources you should have in your home, the lessons are free.    REMINDER CENTRAL TIME CONVERSION IS AN HOUR EARLIER.
