Application deadline for ag-based summer courses is May 1

Kansas

Kansas Foundation for Agriculture in the Classroom will again offer graduate-level summer courses for Kansas teachers in June. Full-tuition scholarships provided by agriculture donors are available, which make these exceptional resources an affordable option for interested educators.

Three courses are offered through KFAC's partnership with the Kansas State University graduate program.

"Connecting Your Classroom to Kansas Agriculture," a three-credit-hour course, will be offered in Manhattan, Kan., June 7 to 11. The theme for this course is general agriculture, and participants will be exposed to many topics including plant science, food science and biotechnology.

"Plants Have a Place in the Classroom," a one-credit-hour course, will be offered in Wichita, Kan., June 14 and 15. The theme for this course is plant science, with a focus on school, classroom and windowsill gardens.

"What You Can Learn from a Tomato," a one-credit-hour course, will be offered in Kansas City, Mo., June 17 and 18. The theme for this course is food science.

All KFAC courses are offered through Kansas State University Division of Continuing Education, the College of Education and the College of Agriculture. Participants earn Kansas State University graduate credit, and each course is approved for continuing education hours required of teachers for license renewal and salary advancement.

Applications are available on the KFAC website at www.ksaglcassroom.org. The application deadline is May 1. To learn more about KFAC summer graduate courses, visit the KFAC website or contact Cathy Musick, KFAC executive director, at 785-532-7946 for information about courses and scholarship availability.
