New this year is “Journey 2050”. Journey 2050 takes students on a virtual simulation that explores world food sustainability and encourages students to make decisions and adjust them as they see their impact of social, economic and environmental factors at a local and global scale. Social Studies, Science, Agri-science Teachers in grades 7-12 will discover how easily this inquiry based approach to global food issues fits into the curriculum. Please note: It is recommended that attendees bring a laptop, tablet or smartphone with Journey 2050 preloaded on your device to be able to participate fully (www.journey2050.com).
Workshops will also include a wealth of lessons and activities on seeds. Discover the importance of seeds to our lives.
