A New Extension Model: The Memorial Middle School Agricultural Extension and Education Center
Skelton, Peter; Seevers, Brenda
Journal of Extension, v48 n6 Article 6IAW5 Dec 2010
The Memorial Middle School Agricultural Extension and Education Center is a new model for Extension. The center applies the Cooperative Extension Service System philosophy and mission to developing public education-based programs. Programming primarily serves middle school students and teachers through agricultural and natural resource science education. Programming efforts provide students with knowledge-based information that is high in content, context, and engagement. This approach serves center goals to cultivate young scientists through hands-on activities, improve student performance through research, and develop a center relevant to the local community agriculture and natural resource needs.
