On The Farm 2021 Accepting ApplicationsFri, 16 Apr 2021 08:29:16 CDT
The American Farm Bureau Foundation for Agriculture and NextGenScience are excited to announce the opening of the 2021 On The Farm STEM program application! This year's On the Farm (OTF) program brings together teams of high school educators together with experts in science education, agricultural science, and Beef Production to envision a model for high school science learning that will inspire today’s students. Several teams of high school educators will collaborate through a series that includes virtual, asynchronous, and in-person activities to inform the design of resources that will prepare students for today’s science standards while making meaningful connections to agriculture.
What is NEW for OTF this year?
The 2021 On the Farm program is designed for teams of high school science professionals.
Teams should represent schools or districts that are interested in using agriculture as a context in high school science courses. This year’s OTF program will work with teams to (1) explore what it means to be agriculturally literate, (2) pilot approaches to teaching with phenomena and problems that are relevant and engaging to students, and (3) share information among other teachers and administrators to serve as champions of agriculture as a context for high school science.
