Science through the lens of agriculture
The PLANT Foundation launched Farm Academy to create a connection between the science and technology of agriculture and the science and technology of everyday life for kids. This relationship allows students to think critically about agricultural issues. Farm Academy programs lead to a future where students understand the natural science of food production and see opportunities in agricultural careers, becoming the innovators of tomorrow to solve the problems facing farming.
Technology as a tool
Farm Academy utilizes technology based educational tools including interactive video conference and streaming videos. These programs meet the needs of teachers in a rapidly changing tech-focused classroom environment. Our programs are designed to meet science standards for grades K-8.
