This year, 57 teachers attended a County-wide Institute Day Workshop held by DuPage County Farm Bureau. The theme was “All Hands on Deck.” Educators gathered at College of DuPage to earn CPDUs while learning how to incorporate Next Generation Science Standards by doing hands-on agricultural activities.
Speakers included Luke Allen from FCAE and Patty Luster and Deanna Roby from University of Illinois Extension. Participants made butter, water bugs, and discovered density in different ag by-products. Registration for 2018 institute day will be released the winter of 2017. Be sure to register early as we fill up every year.
