Upcoming Professional Development Webinar

Get to Know Farm Camp: Personalized Ag Experience for your Classroom
Date: April 13th
Time: 4:00pm

As educators, we know the best way to grow a students' knowledge is to give them a hands-on, meaningful experience. We want to introduce you to Farm Camp Minnesota, a fully immersive agricultural experience focused on increasing ag literacy by providing a memorable connection to a farm or Ag business and allowing students to get their questions answered firsthand. Join us on this webinar to learn about our Virtual Farm Camp experiences and how to register your very own Farm Camp for next fall!

Customized Workshops

Customized workshops provide opportunities to gain resources and ideas for embedding authentic agricultural examples within science, social studies, math, language arts and health/nutrition curricula. Contact MAITC staff to request a in-person or virtual workshop for your group.

Workshops can be customized to fit your needs. Sample options include:

  • One-four hour workshop during an in-service day
  • 30-60 minute Interaction with a focused group such as grade-level team, PLC, etc.
  • 15-20 minute presentation during faculty meeting

The typical workshop format includes whole group activities, hands-on experience with lessons and curricula and sharing samples of our free educational resources. MN Ag in the Classroom Education Specialists share academic standards-based, ag focused activities throughout the workshop.
