'Cultivating New Ideas with Nutrients for Life'

Learn how to bring hands-on, science-based, STEM learning into any middle school classroom to aid students in understanding why crop nutrients and soil science is essential. Through our modules, students can answer the driving question, “How do we feed the world’s growing population?” The resources provide an inquiry-based exploration of soil and encourages students to make connections. Attendees will leave equipped with hand-on learning, free materials and digital tools to engage students in classrooms.
