Missouri Ag in the Classroom Conference

June 15 @ 8:30 am - 4:00 pm

Missouri educators have the opportunity to attend the Missouri Agriculture in the Classroom (AITC) Conference on June 15, 2021 at the Missouri Farm Bureau home office in Jefferson City. The event is FREE for Missouri Farm Bureau members and costs $30 for non-Missouri Farm Bureau members.

The one-day event will feature current and former educators along with agricultural leaders leading five breakout sessions and a group session. Presentations will consist of cross-curricular lessons, engagement ideas and learning resources for elementary teachers. Teachers will walk away from this conference with materials in hand to incorporate into their classrooms. A special session for educators of kindergarten through grade 5 will also be included!

The mission of AITC is to “increase agricultural literacy through K-12 education.” AITC programs seek to improve student achievement by applying authentic, agricultural-based content as the context to teach core curriculum concepts in science, social studies, language arts and nutrition. By encouraging teachers to embed agriculture into their classroom, AITC cultivates an understanding and appreciation of the food and fiber system that we all rely on every day. AITC is unique within the agricultural education community as the lead organization to serve the full spectrum of K-12 formal education.
