August 22 - 24, 2017
Are you curious about food and agriculture?
Do you want to learn new ways to bring agriculture education into the classroom?
The Agriculture Expedition will be an action-packed, hands-on agriculture tour for teachers that will motivate you to incorporate agriculture education in your classrooms. You will personally interact with farmers and agriculture personnel at their farms and agri-businesses to understand the role science, research and technology play in keeping Saskatchewan agriculture competitive at a global market. You will be asked to share your stories and experiences on social media, and continue to actively support AITC-SK throughout the year by sharing our program and resource information with other teachers in your school and division, as well as engaging with AITC-SK social media.
This is a great opportunity for you to connect the food you eat to the farmers who grow it. Many food stories will be created as a result of this experience.
Upon registration, you will be invited to share your questions and concerns about agriculture and we will ensure that we address them during the tour by credible, knowledgeable people.
We are looking for teachers with limited agriculture knowledge and background as well as demonstrated commitment to become an AITC-SK ambassador in the future.
Limited spots available! Apply by June 23 to be considered for this opportunity. Selected teachers will be notified the following week. There is no cost to the tour but we will require a $100 refundable deposit to hold your spot.
