Join us in Utah!
More than 400 educators from around the country will learn how to use agricultural concepts to teach reading, writing, math, science, social studies and more at the National Agriculture in the Classroom Conference called “Agriculture Elevated” to be held June 24-26, 2020, at the Little America Hotel in Salt Lake City, UT.
The National Agriculture in the Classroom Organization (NAITCO) and Utah Agriculture in the Classroom program will hold three days of workshops showing pre-kindergarten through 12th grade teachers how to use agriculture to teach core subjects. It receives partial funding for the conference from the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s National Institute for Food and Agriculture (USDA/NIFA).
In addition, conference participants will go on traveling workshops to learn about a robotic dairy, teaching gardens, wool production, and tart cherry farming—a signature Utah crop. They also will hear from keynote speakers including Nicole Jolly, producer of True Food TV, the web’s most watched channel dedicated to understanding the origins of our food, and Ann Vileisis, author of Kitchen Literacy: How We Lost Knowledge of Where Food Comes From and Why We Need to Get it Back.
Early registration for the conference is $435 until April 15 (after April 15, registration is $485). To register, please visit https://naitcconference.usu.edu/Register.cfm. To reserve a hotel room, please visit https://naitcconference.usu.edu/Venue.cfm.
