For the third year in a row, DuPont Pioneer will award $300,000 in grants to fund training and classroom resources that will help implement advanced agriculture curriculums in public and private schools and universities.
Educators who are implementing Curriculum for Agricultural Science Education (CASE) in their classrooms will be eligible for grants totaling up to $5,000 each.
The CASE program is a multi-year approach to agro science education. It includes rigorous teacher training requirements and hands-on, inquiry-focused learning activities.
“We expect agriculture teachers to be ‘jacks-of-all-trades’ as they must teach a variety of agricultural and natural resources related subjects while enhancing core-academic disciplines, such as science and mathematics,” Dan Jansen, CASE project director, said. “However, our agriculture teachers have minimal resources to equip themselves and their classrooms to provide rigorous instruction. Funding provided by DuPont Pioneer is essential for teachers to gain cutting-edge professional development experiences with CASE to enhance their teaching practices and implement STEM-based agriculture courses. The long-term impact of this support will benefit hundreds, if not thousands, of high school agriculture students.”
