During this interactive workshop, learn about Farm Camp and how with this new program we can create an immersive experience your students will not forget!

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.
