Agriculture is STEM

Date: August 7-8, 2017
Location: Dubuque County Farm Bureau, Peosta, Iowa
Title: Agriculture is STEM
Description: Using agriculture as the context to teach STEM concepts (science, technology,
engineering and math), course participants will integrate agriculture into science, social studies, language arts and math to make learning real and relevant for students. Participants will leave the workshop with instructional strategies, lessons, and activities that can be immediately implemented into their classroom with little or no additional effort. During one day of the course participants will see STEM applied as they tour an agriculture machinery factory, tour a dairy farm, tour Farm Tek, tour a grocery store, seeing the vast array of careers in agriculture available to students. Producers, scientists and other experts will showcase how agriculture uses science and management practices to ensure environmental and economic sustainability. The second day of the course will focus on implementing lessons learned and making them relevant to student learners.
