Ag-Venture is a free, one day program which provides a great opportunity for fourth grade students (public, private and home educated) to gain experience, understanding and the appreciation of our local agricultural industry.
Students view displays of commonly used equipment such as tractors and a cattle trailer, and interactive displays of feed stuffs and soil before starting their Ag-Venture through Alligator, Beef, Bees, Citrus, Dairy, Poultry and Vegetables stations.
Students are given a pre-test in the classroom and a post-test when they return from Ag-Venture to test their knowledge. The post-test also allows Ag-Venture to measure their effectiveness.
