A Message from Dr. Emily Lawrence

NASC Executive Director:

The National Ag Science Center is an exciting place to be! Our programs are growing and evolving-spreading ag awareness throughout our community.  We have the  incredibly important task of educating and inspiring our youth about the multitude of careers in agriculture.

One of the strengths of the NASC is the strong community support we have. Our work would not be possible without support from local businesses and individuals. Thank You!

Through our mobile education experiences, we strive to deliver innovative and compelling agricultural science curriculum to the students of the Central Valley.
