Biotech Blast is a one-day program that will engage your students in science-related activities through hands-on, interactive sessions that are hosted by today’s leaders in the fields of science and biotechnology. Your students will love the experience of learning about today’s agricultural innovations and the future of the industry from our dynamic presenters!
"Biotech Blast was an excellent opportunity for my grade 7 students! They thoroughly enjoyed the 'hands on' sessions and it was the perfect culmination to our 'Feeding a Growing World' inquiry unit! Thank you Agriculture in the Classroom for an excellent day on campus!"
