Beef STEM Event to Engage Science Coordinators

Mon, 21 Dec 2015 12:55:32 CST

Beef STEM Event to Engage Science Coordinators
The American Farm Bureau Foundation for Agriculture has announced an on-farm experience for science curriculum coordinators, funded by the Beef Checkoff. Selected participants will receive a $2,000 stipend to attend.


The “On the Farm STEM Experience” will be held March 28-30, 2016, immediately prior to the National Science Teachers Association annual convention in Nashville, Tennessee. The application and additional information can be found by clicking here.


Science curriculum coordinators are leaders at the district level who influence professional development and training for classroom science teachers. This event seeks to provide coordinators with real-world experience connecting science to the beef industry. As part of the experience, leaders will visit beef production facilities, meet beef producers and their livestock, and have access to Foundation education consultants to help explore the connections between STEM and beef production.


State agricultural literacy organizations are encouraged to invite curriculum coordinators from urban districts to apply. The Foundation is offering an incentive to state Agriculture in the Classroom programs, state Beef Councils and state Farm Bureaus that encourage coordinators to apply. Once the attendees are selected, those organizations that referred the selected participant will receive a $250 credit for the Foundation Resource Store or a $250 cash card to support educational efforts. Applications close Jan. 22. For additional information, contact Angela Mayfield at educationdirector@fb.org.


The Beef Checkoff Program funded development of this program. The Beef Checkoff Program (www.MyBeefCheckoff.com) was established as part of the 1985 farm bill. The checkoff assesses $1 per head on the sale of live domestic and imported cattle, in addition to a comparable assessment on imported beef and beef products. In states with qualified beef councils, states retain up to 50 cents of the dollar and forward the other 50 cents per head to the Cattlemen’s Beef Promotion and Research Board, which administers the national checkoff program, subject to USDA approval.
