Campbell, Brian T.; Wilkinson, Carol A.; Shepherd, Pamela J.; Gray, Paula
Journal of Extension, v53 n4 Article 4TOT6 Aug 2015
STEM education has become essential in the United States, and agriculture allows for a great opportunity to teach STEM education in a fun, hands-on manner. The Virginia Southern Piedmont Agriculture Research and Extension Center (SPAREC), in partnership with King Arthur Flour, has created a program that reinforces what is taught in the classroom while also adding in new lessons in citizenship. This program has been very successful and serves as an excellent model for future partnerships between industry and Extension.
