Sharing Feed the World at NETA 2019

A recent tech event gave us great opportunities to connect with teachers and others! Nebraska Corn Board sponsored a Feed the World booth at the Nebraska Educational Technology Association’s 2019 conference. This event was attended by over 2000 Nebraska teachers, media specialists, administrators, and IT specialists.

Feed the World lead educator Heather Bryan said, “Teachers were excited to hear about the use of agriculture science in middle school, as well as high school biology, chemistry, and environmental science classrooms! It was great to connect with the Nebraska teachers and other tech specialists and see their positive reaction to our content focus and the connections to their classrooms and communities.”

Over 200 people stopped by the Feed the World booth to learn about our resources. They heard that the agricultural industry needs innovative students to consider ag-related careers in biotechnology, soil and water chemistry, biofuel and bioproduct production, precision farming technology, and more.

Teachers also learned about the new NGSS-aligned lessons that are being created for Nebraska teachers, one of which is already available on our website: Energy and ethanol.

Congratulations to these visitors who won a $25 Amazon Gift card in a random drawing after stopping by to check out our resources!
