Save the Date!
Ag Careers Connect to STEM, an in-person workshop, is being offered by Iowa Agriculture Literacy Foundation in partnership with Linn, Buchanan and Delaware County Farm Bureau.
The two-day workshop is being offered July 20 and 21, 2022 at Linn County Farm Bureau in Hiawatha, Iowa. The workshop will be available for teacher recertification credit and graduate level credit.
This fast-paced professional development will give teachers, extension personnel, and others who educate youth the skills they need to implement many of the Iowa Core social studies and science standards. Participants will take home activities and lesson ideas that can be immediately implemented into their classroom.
On day one we will be visiting Blue Grass Sod, Dix Family Farms, and Kirkwood Community College. Participants will explore how modern technology has improved the sustainability of Iowa agriculture while discovering the vast industry of agriculture careers. The tours will highlight the ways STEM is utilized in sod production, raising sheep and how it can be relevant to students in the classroom.
The second day of the course will focus on implementing lessons learned, connecting standards to science and social studies, and making it relevant to student learners. Participants will learn about ethanol, supply chain, agritourism, Iowa history, STEM in agriculture, and more.
