2013 AGsploration Teacher Training Registration Form

The University of Maryland Extension AGsploration team will be hosting a series of teacher in-services during the 2012-2013 school year. Teachers and other youth educators are invited to attend these one-day seminars to receive training, curriculum, and teaching materials in order to implement the AGsploration program in their own classrooms.

A three-time national award-winning program, AGsploration is a science-based curriculum designed for middle school students. AGsploration lessons allow students to explore the relationships between agriculture, the environment, and their health through engaging hands-on activities. All twenty-two lessons are aligned with the Maryland state standards for science and health. While designed for classroom use, the lessons can easily be adapted for use by after school programs or community organizations.

Please join us for this training to learn about AGsploration:  The Science of Maryland Agriculture and how you can utilize in your school programming.  All participants will gain hands-on experience with AGsploration lessons and will be provided with teaching materials and curriculum to support the lessons they received training for.  Participants will attend one of four tracks 1) animal agriculture, 2) plant agriculture, 3) agriculture and the environment, and 4) agricultural technology.
