K-12 teachers: Earn graduate credit or professional development hours as you explore ways to infuse farm & food understanding into your curriculum. More than 230 area teachers have participated in our SAI!
Summer Ag Institute (SAI) participants:
- Tour local farms and interact with the farmers who raise our food.
- Visit agribusinesses and investigate career opportunities in agriculture
- Examine issues of food production (food safety, environmental protection, etc.) and discuss age-appropriate ways to explore them with students.
- Develop lessons to incorporate food & farm-related content while addressing learning standards.
The 2019 SAI will center on the theme of Exploring STEM Tools in Food & Farming. Teachers can earn either 45 PDCs or 3 graduate credits (University of St. Francis). Class meeting dates for the 2019 SAI are June 5, 6, 7, 10, 11, & 12.
