Lake Land College offers free Ag Institute I and II for K-12 educators

Lake Land College will offer two sessions of the Ag Institute this summer. Ag Institutes are designed for K-12 educators to learn the amazing impact agriculture has on our daily lives. By touring Ag businesses and farms, by meeting with industry professionals, and by engaging in hands-on activities, participants will gain first-hand knowledge they can share with their students as well as lesson plans relating to State of Illinois teaching standards.  Lake Land College Agriculture instructors Jon Althaus, Ryan Orrick and Dyke Barkley will teach and organize the Ag Institute tours and stops.

Ag Institute I is a three-day adventure that will run from June 10-12 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. For this course, participants will learn about the impact agriculture has on our daily lives. By touring area agricultural businesses and farms, meeting industry professionals and engaging in hands-on activities, participants will gain first-hand knowledge that can be shared with their students. Lunch is provided.  

Ag Institute II will go deeper into the agriculture experience, updating participants on the latest technologies used in the field.  The processes of sustainability, alternative agriculture, bio-technology and current research in agriculture will be discussed.  This section meets June 17-19 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. and lunch is provided.

Both classes will be held on the Lake Land College campus in West Building, room 136.  Participants can sign up for one or both sessions.
