What is Ag in Motion?
Ag In Motion (AIM) is a mobile lab inviting 7th and 8th grade students inside to experience hands-on ag science learning. When the lab pulls up to a school site, students are excited to participate in what they know will be a change from their science classroom. AIM offers standards-based experiences including: Astronaut Farmer (will you survive growing vegetables on the moon?), CSI Strawberry (Can you solve the strawberry cloning mystery?) and more.
What is Faith Ranch?
The Faith Ranch Experience is a third-grade field trip to a private wildlife preserve in East Modesto. Students travel by bus out to the ranch and there the adventure begins! Student investigators explore the flora and fauna the ranch has to offer while exploring stations across a nearly three-acre spread.
As the NASC continues to grow and develop we are eager to partner with individuals and corporations in our community. Our driving mission is to bring mobile agricultural science education programs to the students of Stanislaus County.
Founded in 1996, the National Ag Science Center has developed and evolved programs with partners from the Stanislaus community, the ag industry, and educational institutions. Our guiding principal has been to facilitate conversations about the resources we have and how they can help prepare students to successfully enter careers in ag and ag related fields.
