New Mobile Classroom Teaches Kids About Ag, Science
Wednesday, June 22, Ag In Motion made its formal debut and the doors were open for donors, friends and the regional media. Your Produce Man, Michael Marks showed his trademark enthusiasm to the Good Day Sacramento audience as he broadcast live from AIM. The reviews from all who toured the newly completed classroom were great! Next stop, the Grow California conference at UC Davis where AIM has been named one of the top 25 Ag Innovation Game Changers of the Year!
Ag in Motion is a fifty-three-foot trailer featuring 20 laboratories complete with microscopes, lesson plans and the latest technology to deliver a unique educational experience to area seventh graders. The board of directors of the National Ag Science Center decided about a year ago to create a mobile classroom to tour middle schools and provide students with an educational experience designed to excite their minds and encourage future careers in agriculture. <more> May 27, 2011 - Turlock Journal
