At the 2018 National FFA Convention- Ron Hays talks Blue Room with Beth Bechdol- the Future Has Arrived

Wed, 24 Oct 2018 05:40:56 CDT

In today's Ag Perspectives Podcast- we feature a conversation we had here in Indianapolis at the 91st Convention of the FFA with Beth Bechdol of Agri Novus Indiana- Beth is credited with bringing the concept of the Blue Room to the FFA and has helped in making it a reality for the 2018 Convention.

The Blue Room, a 17,000-square-foot interactive space, will showcase the cutting-edge technology, research and innovation happening across the spectrum. Through experiential learning and specific focus on the most critical challenges facing our communities - from respecting the planet to the urgent matter of feeding the world - The Blue Room experience serves to inspire and equip students to activate their potential.

Out of the Blue Room will also come Blue 365- the digital version of the Blue Room that will be available to FFA Chapters and Members everywhere in the not too distant future. Microsoft is a major supporter of the Blue365 efforts.
