From drones to self-driving tractors, tech is transforming agriculture. This matters to teachers preparing students for career readiness, since the agriculture industry provides over 10%* of U.S. jobs.
This webinar, featuring Dr. Scott Shearer of The Ohio State University, will give teachers of science, computer science, engineering and technology up-to-date information that will connect your curriculum to how researchers are using technology to confront the wicked problems facing agriculture today.

Dr. Shearer, a precision agriculture expert, will join GrowNextGen education specialist Jane Hunt to help teachers learn:

  • What challenges face agriculture professionals?
  • How are the latest developments in AI and automation solving the major challenges in ag?
  • How does technology affect the jobs available for students preparing to join the workforce?
  • How might degrees in computer science, data analysis, artificial intelligence, and automation be students’ opening to a career in ag?
