MAEF's Elementary Program consists of the following:

Ag in the Classroom
Join us for an exciting week. Hands on learning... Resources galore... Field trips... So much fun!




Ag Literacy
Each year, volunteers visit elementary schools to read an agriculturally themed book to students in grade k-4. The volunteer share ways agriculture impacts the daily lives of students, then donates the book to the school's media center.

The Mobile Science Labs will be traveling to schools throughout the academic year! Keep checking the schedule below for a Mobile Science Lab in your area!




Ag in 10 Minutes a Day
