|PA FFA members get ready to start the conference.|
Penn State lead a workshop called "Teach Ag" which focused on the big picture of agricultural education and how FFA members have a future inspiring students. Agricultural education does not just happen in the United States; it happens worldwide. It is important that we educate people not only in the agriculture classroom, but also use opportunities in the community. Students also brainstormed ways that they can be advocate for agricultural education by sharing ideas on various events that we can do. Some of the examples were: community gardens, teaching elementary students, and community Ag days. We look forward to seeing some of these bright FFA members become possible agriculture teachers!
We were happy to have some of our dynamic AEE majors helping out with these workshops at the conference! Those that participated were:
