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

,300-acre working farm. This dual approach is designed to reinvigorate their love of teaching and stimulate teachers to make the learning experience for their students intriguing and fun.

Six previous academy attendees (“Ag Ambassadors”), who together have 92 years of teaching experience, have been selected to facilitate the week-long academy. LAB-AIDS, Ronkonkoma, NY, developed the training curriculum which will focus on agricultural science, horticulture, veterinary science, natural resources, sustainability, food safety and food security.

“The exceptional content of the academies invigorates all who participate and ensures that we have more highly qualified teachers returning to their home schools to put what they learned into practice. As a result, students are energized to explore the many facets of agriscience, from agribusiness to science and math, which enhances student achievement as measured by standardized tests,” said Jay Jackman, executive director of NAAE. “Over the past decade, we have trained 229 Ag Ambassadors who, in their roles as trainers, have presented workshops to more than 12,000 teachers across the United States including Puerto Rico and Alaska. In all, they have had a direct impact on tens of thousands of students.”

This fall, selected teachers from this year’s Academy will lead seminars and workshops at the Agriscience Institute during the annual National FFA Convention in Louisville, Ky., and the National Association of Agricultural Educators (NAAE) convention in Las Vegas, Nev..

The NAAE is a federation of state agricultural educators associations with more than 7,650 members. Currently, NAAE is focusing on advocacy for agricultural education as well as professional development for and recruitment and retention of agricultural educators. NAAE offers a variety of programs and services to support this mission.
