In addition to the keynote speaker, educators from across the state will present interactive workshop sessions on activities and lessons that use agriculture to teach science, math, social studies and language arts concepts. The conference will serve as a professional development event for Kansas educators and will provide the option to purchase five continuing education units through Kansas State University Global Campus.
