Our presentation will address the need for problem-based and experiential learning activities in agricultural and sciences classes. It will show how these outdoor STEM projects can bridge current science teaching standards; how they will provide opportunities for secondary student SAE programs; and how they can be conducted within middle schools at a reasonable cost.

Agriculture classes provide the perfect opportunities for students to practice Experiential Learning. Dr. Jim Frederick with Clemson University has demonstrated that by establishing a research station at Darlington Middle School. The Station allows students to monitor effects on plant to include things such as weather, soil types and fertilizer rates. The opportunities for exploration are endless. Dr. Frederick will review the history and current status of his project, and provide guidance in how you can establish similar stations at your school, requiring minimal investment in either land or finances.
