2017 On the Farm STEM Events Announced

“If you work as a STEM coordinator, coach at a school district or university or work in a leadership role, this may be a great fit for you,” said Julie Tesch, executive director of the Foundation. “On The Farm STEM events provide a tremendous learning opportunity for non-formal educators as well, such as those who design learning experiences at museums and events which explore the application of STEM concepts in real life,” she added.

The training was designed to bring science to life for participants with the help of American beef cattle ranchers, researchers, nutritionists and veterinarians.

Selected participants will receive free registration, reimbursement of up to $1,000 for approved travel expenses, hotel accommodations for three nights and meals, in addition to educational supplies and resources.
