Agriculture in the Classroom
Nebraska Farm Bureau Foundation for Agriculture supports Nebraska Agriculture in the Classroom.
Agriculture in the Classroom (AITC) is a nationwide educational program to help students develop awareness and understanding that agriculture is our source of food, clothing, shelter and other essentials of life. In Nebraska, the program is managed and funded by the Nebraska Farm Bureau Foundation for Agriculture, a nonprofit, tax-exempt organization with headquarters at the Nebraska Farm Bureau office in Lincoln, Nebraska.
The Nebraska AITC Program provides resources and training to K-12 teachers on ways to use agriculture as the vehicle to teach across existing curriculum. These resources use an integrated/hands-on approach to learning. Each of the resources is correlated with the Nebraska State Standards in the basic subject areas.
Nebraska students learn that the agricultural industry includes the production, processing, distribution and marketing of the products that we use every day. This program provides the students with the knowledge of the agricultural industry, thereby allowing them to support wise decisions concerning agricultural policies. It is our goal to educate these future consumers.
