How is science contributing to the future of global food and energy security?
Teachers: Learn how advancing technologies help us produce more with less. You’ll also take part in inquiry-based, based, hands-on science labs with an engineering design edge covering biotechnology, soil science, water quality, energy production, and sustainable agricultural practices. These lessons address Ohio Science Standards in middle school and high school. Take home free supplies for your classroom. Meet industry experts and tour an ethanol plant. The first day will conclude with an evening dinner where you’ll meet and talk with local farmers and industry experts and see technology demonstrations.
Shared hotel and meals provided by Ohio Corn & Wheat Growers Association. Each teacher will receive over $350 worth of classroom lab supplies. 18 hours of contact time will be awarded for the two-day workshop, and 1 hour of graduate credit is available from Ashland University for $175.
