PA Friends of Ag Foundation Educator’s Ag Institute
The PA Friends of Ag Foundation Educator’s Ag Institute provides a unique learning experience for PreK-12th grade formal educators, pre-service teachers and informal community educators. The Institute provides educational tours at Penn State University as well as local family-run farms where participants learn valuable information from those involved in agriculture - including farmers, university professors and agricultural leaders. The learning experience also includes hands-on classroom sessions that cover topics such as plant and animal production, agricultural research, PA state education standards, ag history, and current/future farming trends in the agricultural industry.
Scheduled for late June, two different tracks are being offered. The weeklong sessions will be held in Centre County, PA. To learn more and register, go to https://pfbfriends.com/educators-ag-institute/. Registration closes May 20.
