Schedule an A+STEM workshop

Submitted by Cathy Musick

Kansas Foundation for Agriculture in the Classroom (KFAC) is now scheduling Agriculture + Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (A+STEM) workshops for the 2015 fall semester for Kansas school districts. These workshops are half-day, in-service trainings designed to provide hands-on, applicable methods for using agriculture in teaching STEM curriculum.

A+STEM workshops are custom-designed to fit specific needs of a school district. In addition to gaining fresh ideas, teachers will have the opportunity to brainstorm and collaborate with colleagues in an effort to make state education standards more achievable using creative methods. Teachers will also earn professional development hours.

Cost of the workshop is $75 per teacher with a minimum of seven teachers. County farm bureaus and conservation districts are encouraged to include A+STEM workshops in local water festivals or agriculture days.

School districts, farm bureaus, extension offices or conservation districts interested in scheduling an A+STEM workshop should call the KFAC office at 785-320-4350 or email ksfac@ksu.edu.
