What is Awesome Agriculture?

Partner with IAITC this school year to bring engaging science topics into your classroom every week! Learn about each of our agriculture focus areas with a thought-provoking question and watch a video answer from an Illinois farmer. Then, dig deeper with a multitude of accompanying lessons and resources.

Creation of our Awesome Agriculture pages will be ongoing through the next year, with the ultimate goal of having 36 topics for you to implement into your science curriculum - one per week of the school year. Browse our topics below!

We can't wait to share more with you starting summer 2024.
