Bayer USA Foundation announced its award of a $150,000 grant to the National Agricultural Center and Hall of Fame, known as the Ag Center, in Bonner Springs, Kansas, for a new children's exhibit last week. 

Bayer's Crop Science division is committed to agriculture education through "Science for a Better Life."

“We are so thankful to Bayer for its generous support of the Ag Center through this grant from the Bayer USA Foundation,” Ag Center Executive Director Dawn Gabel said. “It is exciting to imagine that a child who will visit this future exhibit could one day become an inductee into our very own Hall of Fame thanks in part to what they learned here about agriculture.”

The three-year grant is to build a new children's exhibit, which is scheduled to open in 2018. It will be located in the Ag Center's Children's Agriculture Science Center.

“The National Agricultural Center & Hall of Fame is truly one of our country’s greatest treasures, and Bayer is proud to support its mission as part of our own efforts to inspire the next generation of leaders in the agriculture industry,” Kansas City Bayer Crop Science Site Leader Paul Nagy said. “In all of our local communities, it is essential that programs and initiatives like this exhibit are available to support parents, teachers and other leaders in providing these sorts of educational opportunities for students of all ages.”
