PROGRAM OVERVIEW:
Seed Survivor is a free, curriculum-based, agricultural program that tours North America year-round. It has been compared to a Walt Disney display on wheels and we can’t wait to bring it to your local classrooms.Last year we planted approx. 100,000 sunflower seeds with students across North America!This truck and trailer will arrive at pre-registered schools and children progress through interactive Seed Survivor stations. The 36-foot trailer is handicap accessible and includes an entry and exit door. Students spend half the presentation outside the trailer in a guided plant nutrient lesson and outdoor displays and half the presentation inside the trailer playing each station. They explore multi-media and virtual reality games, interactive activities, talking walls and much more.

After visiting Seed Survivor, students leave with an understanding that plants need water, light, healthy soil and nutrients to survive. They also learn about where their food comes from and the importance of agriculture to their daily lives. All participants get to plant a sunflower seed to take home and grow!
