Bryanna Kenno (@bkenno4), Rea Ianson (@rnianson08), and Howard Poole (@howie_poole) will be attending the program that focuses on developing inquiry-based lessons for their use. The program aims to promote inquiry-based learning and enhance science in agriculture. Bryanna, Rea and Howard will participate in the hands on workshop and be able to create inquiry-based lessons that they can use during their student teaching experience this spring.

Bryanna said "I am most excited to meet the other participants from states all throughout the nation. I'm anxious to exchange ideas, network with other pre-service teachers and just be a part of this awesome opportunity!" 

Students were chosen to participate in the workshop through an application submission through the National Association of Agriculture Educators.

Rea Ianson stated, "I am excited to be able to learn new techniques and tips that I can utilize in my classroom while getting to interact with the awesome group of student teachers!"

Along with the pre-service teacher program, many Penn State students will be staffing the State Photo booth, judging CDE events, working the Penn State College of Ag Sciences booth and competing in ATA conclave events. The National Convention will be held in Louisville, Kentucky, October 29 through November 1.
