Curriculum for Agricultural Science Education has added two new course offerings to its summer 2015 line-up. Agricultural Power and Technology (APT) and Agricultural Research and Development (ARD) are the newest additions to the overwhelmingly popular CASE Institutes.

 

The Agricultural Power and Technology course is the foundation level course for the agricultural mechanics pathway. The focus of the course is fabrication, energy usage, machines and structures. The course allows students to apply content knowledge from chemistry and physics in real-life settings, as they observe and work in their agricultural mechanics classroom. Students will focus on engineering and design principles in mechanics, which will allow them to incorporate Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) principles into their coursework.

 

"The Agricultural Power and Technology course provides students with a foundation of knowledge that they will be able to use in any additional agricultural mechanics courses they choose to take," said Carl Aakre, Agricultural Power and Technology Curriculum Writer.

 

APT currently has three Field Test locations: Tennessee State University, University of Missouri, and Kansas State University. For more information about this course, click here.

 

The APT curriculum is co-sponsored by TransCanada, John Deere, and Firestone.

CASE is also adding Agricultural Research and Development to its course offerings this summer. The ARD course serves as the capstone course for all CASE Program of Study pathways. This course will culminate students' experiences in agriculture, based on the pathway of study they pursued. The course will enhance critical thinking and teamwork skills as students expand their content knowledge from previous CASE courses. ARD is designed to develop and improve employability skills of students as they conduct research and analyze data in order to complete projects and solve complex, real-world problems.

 

"Agricultural Research and Development culminates all CASE pathways in a rigorous research and development process. Students will be prepared for the transitions to college and career as a result of the intentional and intensely reflective nature of the course," said Melanie Bloom, CASE Plant Pathway Coordinator.

 

ARD has two Field Tests this summer, both hosted by Rutgers University at Allentown High School in New Jersey. For more information about his course, click here.

 

The ARD curriculum is sponsored by DuPont Pioneer.

Since these courses will be field tested this summer, there are additional requirements for teachers to attend the institutes. Teachers interested in these courses must submit a Field Test Application with their course registration and will be required to adhere to additional criteria as they pilot the course(s) in their classrooms. The feedback provided by field test teachers is what CASE will use to evaluate course effectiveness, in order to make adjustments prior to course publication.

 

Interested in attending a CASE Institute this summer? They are filling up fast, so make sure to get your registration in as soon as possible to reserve your spot.
