Biology of Sustainable Agriculture
Agricultural Biology is a hands-on laboratory course designed to help students develop a scientific viewpoint and provide each student with a background in biology as it relates to agriculture. During the year, students will study organisms and their relationships with one another and the environment in which they live. In addition, students will learn of the diversity of organisms and evolutionary relationships and adaptations. Students will discover what molecular biology principles guide sustainable agriculture and how to maximize sustainable agriculture practices within a functioning ecosystem.
Introduction to Agriscience
Introduction to Agriscience is an introductory course that provides students with the foundational knowledge they need to succeed within the agricultural industry. Students are introduced to the National FFA Organization (formerly known as the Future Farmers of America), in addition to all seven of the primary agricultural pathways: Animal Systems, Plant Systems, Food Products & Processing Systems, Natural Resource Systems, Environmental Systems, and Agricultural Business Systems. By exploring each of the agricultural pathways, every student is given the opportunity to make informed choices about how they would like to specialize their agricultural education. Students can expect to work collaboratively with their classmates in a hands-on setting to explore agriculture.
