Scott Logsdon has an interesting work experience record: 3 years for International Field Studies on Andros Island in the Bahamas teaching marine biology and leading SCUBA diving, snorkeling and sailing trips; 3 years at Celina Senior High; and most recently, 22 years at Bexley High School. This adds up to 28 years of teaching, covering Biology, AP Biology, Ecology, Physical Science, and Marine Science.
In his spare time, Logsdon loves to spend time with his family, especially to be outdoors with his wife. He enjoys hiking, fishing, hunting, working with his children on 4H projects, watching his daughter in concert and competition marching band and his son in cross country and track.
He sees agriculture as a critical addition to education: “Agriculture should be connected to all of our teaching of science content, especially in Ohio where it is the economic engine of our state.”
Logsdon learned about Feed the World resources from his colleague Jennifer Messerly after she attended a one day workshop at Highbanks Metro Park. In his own classroom, he’s used Corn fermentation in a bag, Water quality chemical tests, and the Lawn Chemicals activity from Soil and Sustainability so far, and plans to present more FTW lessons in the future.
He really enjoyed his time at the 2 day summer FTW workshop. “I loved this workshop and would do it all over again for the labs and activities that we did. Hands on for sure!!! Great tour of the Ethanol Plant! I have a master plus 50 semester hours and this workshop ranks at the top of all professional development that I have done. I am looking forward to more of FTW offerings this summer and beyond!”
