'Feeding the World and Protecting the Environment'

Our students will be challenged with providing enough food for the world’s growing population with decreasing space for food production and without harming the environment. That’s where soil science comes in – soil is essential to a plant’s success and plays a huge role in feeding the world. In this workshop, we will explore the biogeochemical cycles that provide the nutrients that plants need. We will also explore the relationship between soil nutrients and water quality, specially harmful algae blooms. Activities will include games, interactive web sites and case studies.

Workshop Session (all workshops will be 60 minutes)
