Description/Notes: 

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.

In-service participants will receive six hours of instruction, hard and electronic copies of the AGsploration curriculum, complete materials to teach selected lessons, and a hot lunch. Registration is free! 

Registration for this training is now closed. The AGsploration team is, however, planning additional training events for fall and winter 2013. If you are interested in scheduling a group training for teachers at your school or organization, please contact Sara BhaduriHauck at sbh@umd.edu.

Cost: 
FREE!
