What if you want to be a science and technology teacher, but don’t know what you want or need to do with a farm?
If you’re a young person, you might not know what a farm is, or how much you should know.
Or you might have heard that agro-technology programs can teach students about agriculture, but you’re not sure whether it’s the right thing to do.
Now the Institute for Sustainable Agriculture (ISA) is releasing a guide that explains how you can get involved.
The farm-to-school program aims to be the most accessible resource for people interested in science and farming, said ISA executive director Jennifer Anderson.
The goal is to make it easier to understand what agrotechnologies are, how they work, and where to get the most out of them, she said.
The program also has some specific requirements, such as getting permission from the school’s principal or the school board.
And the program is not free.
The cost to attend the program ranges from $25 to $350.
For more information about how to apply, go to the institute’s website at http://www.sustainability.org/agro-tech-scholarships.
If you are interested in being a science teacher or a technology program, you’ll need to apply to be considered, Anderson said.
The program’s online application is the easiest way to get in touch with the ISA.
