Ag In Motion

AIM: A Mobile Agricultural Science Lab and Classroom

Ag In Motion (AIM) is our primary vehicle to reach students. A mobile science laboratory classroom that travels to schools and invites students to experience hands-on ag science. A menu of standards-based ag science curricula offers labs to schools that align with their current lessons while providing students with new perspectives on how ag science impacts the food they eat and the clothes they wear.

 

Ag In Motion Curriculum

Have you ever wondered if you could really grow food on Mars? Are you concerned about zombie bugs attacking our plants? Would you investigated mysterious strawberry cloning scandals? If your answer is yes, then you are a perfect fit for Ag In Motion’s (AIM) new lab series. We are developing new interactive and engaging curriculum for our 7th and 8th grade investigative ag scientists in the Central Valley. Support our efforts and support the students as they delve into ag science education in our hands-on mobile lab. Next Generation Science Standards with exciting ag science mysteries and challenges!

Students are provided with a laboratory notebook that is collected by their teacher to assess and grade.  Schools are given the opportunity to choose from a menu of options which are specific to seventh grade life science or eighth grade physical science curricula.
