DuPont Sponsors National AgriScience Ambassador Academy
Date:6/18/2013

Wilmington, DE (PRWEB) June 18, 2013

DuPont welcomes 48 of the nation’s finest agricultural science teachers to the 11th annual DuPont National AgriScience Teachers Ambassador Academy this week (NATAA) at the company’s Chesapeake Farms in Chestertown, Md.

The NATAA “Ag Academy” is a professional development institute sponsored by DuPont and is a special project of the National FFA Foundation and the National Association of Agricultural Educators (NAAE). The highly recommended agriscience teachers, who are participating in the first of two sessions (June 16-21 and July 14-19), will engage in inquiry-based activities and learn techniques and exciting new approaches that, when brought back to the classroom, will stimulate students to learn more about agriscience and its role in helping create a healthier, more sustainable future.

“Making sure we have enough healthy, nutritious food to feed a rapidly growing global population is one of the greatest challenges that the world faces today,” said Rik L. Miller, president, DuPont Crop Protection. “The ongoing work of the Ag Academy helps us take a significant step toward meeting that challenge, as it embodies both the professional development required and the enthusiasm necessary to help students flourish in agriscience-related fields.”

Ag Academy participants learn innovative teaching concepts in a classroom setting and spend the majority of their training time applying them through real-world, hands-on activities on Chesapeake Farms 3
