AgriScience

Course Description

The AgriScience course is designed to introduce students to concepts of agriculture and natural resource management through the production of their food from the ground up! The class enables students to actively engage with industry professionals as they learn to handle livestock, manage plant systems from crop production, and gain experience with forestry and fisheries. There is a strong emphasis on animal care (we have animals on campus), plant systems, teamwork, and career readiness. Each student chooses a Supervisory Agricultural Experience as an individual project where they can explore their area of interest. Through the course students will develop leadership skills and earn scholarships by participating in FFA, a national organization for students in agricultural education. Pathway: Natural Resources & AgriScience
