DuPont and the National Association of Agricultural Educators (NAAE) has awarded $200,000 in grants to provide agriscience educators with training and classroom resources to implement advanced curriculum that will better prepare students for future careers in agriculture and food.

CASE is a multi-year approach to agriscience education with rigorous educator training requirements and hands-on, inquiry focused learning activities. The collaboration with DuPont Pioneer and CASE is a special project of the National FFA Foundation.

“We are excited that DuPont Pioneer understands the importance of CASE, and they’re putting their funding where teachers have said they need it most,” said Dan Jansen, CASE project director. “These grants will help teachers who have wanted to implement the CASE curriculum but have not been able to because of school budgets.”
