Missouri AITC conference at Missouri state university

By Blake Jackson

Missouri educators are invited to participate in the Missouri Agriculture in the Classroom (AITC) Conference on June 17, 2024, at the Springfield Regional Professional Development Center (RPDC) hosted at Missouri State University. This event, aimed at enhancing agricultural literacy in K-12 education, is free for Missouri Farm Bureau members and costs $30 for non-members.

The AITC program focuses on integrating agriculture-based content into core curriculum subjects like science, social studies, language arts, and nutrition to enhance student achievement. By incorporating agriculture into classroom instruction, teachers can deepen students' understanding and appreciation of the food and fiber system that sustains us daily.

The conference schedule includes informative sessions beginning at 9 a.m. with introductions and welcome remarks, followed by two sessions covering agricultural education topics. After a lunch break, attendees will have the opportunity to participate in a tour of agricultural facilities, enhancing their understanding of farm operations and educational resources available.

AITC plays a crucial role in promoting agricultural literacy across K-12 education, making it unique within the agricultural education community.

Educators attending this conference will gain valuable insights and resources to incorporate agriculture into their teaching, enriching the learning experience for students while fostering a deeper connection to the agricultural industry.

This event promises to be both educational and inspiring for educators passionate about integrating agriculture into their classrooms. Click here for Registration.
