What We Do
By encouraging teachers to embed agriculture into their classrooms, AITC-SK cultivates an understanding and appreciation of the food and fiber system we rely on daily.
Our curriculum-based initiatives explore a wide array of concepts, such as where food comes from, food waste, STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math), career exploration, and more, with the theme of sustainability woven throughout.
We know that to drive change, youth need to have multiple positive agriculture learning experiences throughout their education journey. Every student should go on a farm tour, grow a garden, learn how to read a food label, talk to a producer, sit in a tractor, feed an animal, and learn about the abundance of career opportunities in agriculture. To create a cohesive learning journey, we strategically provide experiences at different grade levels, where each builds upon the previous one.
