The Science of Agriculture in the Virtual Classroom
Middle and High School Science Teachers!
The North Dakota Department of Agriculture, NDSU College of Agriculture and EduTech invite you and your students to participate in a collaborative ag-based science project.
Middle and High School Science classes in North Dakota are invited to participate in this virtual science project! Participating classes will collaborate with experts in Agriculture science and research to learn more about science topics they choose to study. Topics may include but are not limited to biofuels, food safety, plant sciences, animal pregnancy and nutrition and entomology. The project culminates in a multipoint videoconference between the participating classes and the Ag researchers on campus where students deliver presentations they’ve prepared based on their chosen topics.
The goal of this project is to bring together high school science classes and agriculture experts for project-based learning experiences both aligned to science curriculum and focused on topics relevant to the agriculture industry.
- Fall 2009 participation limited to six classes,
- Participation will be based on a first come, first served basis,
- Participating teachers and their classrooms will receive a $400 stipend,
- Participants will use videoconferencing and online tools for project activities.
