FARM Science Lab visits at Superior Hills Elementary

Marquette, MISeptember 30, 2018 – Superior Hills’s second, third, fourth and fifth graders got a head start on learning more about how their food is raised as the Food, Agriculture & Resources in Motion (FARM) Science Lab made a stop at school this week.

Classes spent an hour apiece investigating renewable resources, studying food science or learning the structure and function of plants.

Equipped with the latest teaching technologies and tooled with STEM-based lessons to increase agricultural awareness, the 40-foot mobile classroom brings hands-on, field trip-type learning directly to schools.

The FARM Science Lab helps to reinforce grade-level standards with hands-on science experiments while increasing students’ knowledge of how agriculture impacts their daily lives. All FARM Science Lab lessons meet Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS).

“The FARM Science Lab provides an opportunity for students engage and learn about the role agriculture plays in our daily lives while connecting to the NGSS science standards,” said Michelle Blodgett, FARM Science Lab Manager, Michigan Farm Bureau. “Through our Michigan Agriculture in the Classroom programming, which includes the FARM Science Lab, we strive to show teachers ways to make real-world connections to scientific concepts through agriculture.”

The FARM Science Lab’s visit to Superior Hills) was sponsored by the Michigan Farm Bureau and the Upper Michigan Farm Bureau Grant Committee.

The FARM Science Lab is made possible by generous donors to the Michigan Foundation for Agriculture, a 501c3 charitable organization housed by Michigan Farm Bureau.
