Inspiring youth and young scientists for agriculture

Many kids have little clue about where their food comes from. They find a pizza in the freezer, but can’t say what the dough is made of, or where tomatoes grow. Whilst this knowledge is shrinking, the demand for healthy food and efficient farming is rising. In 35 years we’ll have to feed almost 10 billion people. Already today one in eight doesn’t have enough to eat. That’s why new solutions and creative ideas are needed: how will we feed our hungry planet? The Agricultural Education Program encourages the next generation to get active, discuss, come up with ideas, research and explore the future of agriculture.

Experimental Learning - AgLearn

In schools, the knowledge gap in the field of agriculture starts at an early age – especially
since most kids grow up in urban areas and lack hands-on experience with farmers. And this
gap can often not be filled by school curricular as the financial means are very limited to
acquire fun and interactive learning modules for teachers.

  • Learning and exercise material for teachers and an experimental part for kids.
  • This interactive element is in comic style and includes self-doing components as well
    as videos.
