Next week is Farm Science Review. Yes, we are bringing FSR to you VIRTUALLY.  Join us for virtual field trips to robotic dairies, ice cream and cheese making, agriculture in Hawaii, and so much more.  Patty House, OSU Ext., Clark County 4-H Educator has given leadership to the Ohio 4-H STEM in Ag tent since 2012.  “Bringing STEM in Agriculture to life has always been the mission of the hands-on experiences offered in the Ohio 4-H STEM in Ag Tent at Farm Science Review”, shared House.  This year the virtual world provides us the opportunity to do it just a little differently, but still focused on participants engagement in hands-on learning.  In fact, we are able to bring experiences not possible in the past like dairy and meat science.  House has partnered with Clark County agriculture producers Young’s Jersey Dairy and Beaverdale Farm, Global Impact STEM Academy. Ohio Agriculture Commodity Groups, CFAES faculty and Ohio 4-H professionals to bring diverse opportunities for youth.   Check out the schedule below to join.  Visit fsr.osu.edu to see nearly 200 virtual opportunities for youth and adults.  Participants will need to log-in to My Show Planner to access all the additional resources.  Directions for log-in follows the schedule below.
