Why include ag science in your classroom?
Everyone has to eat. As our population continues to grow we will need the brightest students leading the charge in agricultural science careers to ensure food and energy security. Agriculture is Ohio’s top industry, with 1 in 7 people working in an agriculture-related job.
Each teacher will receive over $350 worth of classroom lab supplies. 18 hours of contact time will be awarded for the 2 day workshop and 1 hour of graduate credit is available from Ashland University for $175.
