Farm Science Lab-Bringing Agriculture to Heritage!
From the Farm Science Lab Website:
“The FARM Science Lab is a 40-foot mobile classroom, equipped with the latest teaching
technologies and tooled with STEM-based lessons that are aligned with the Next Generation
Science Standards (NGSS) and National Agricultural Literacy Outcomes (NALO) to increase
agricultural awareness. The FARM Science Lab reinforces grade-level standards with hands-on science opportunities while increasing students’ knowledge of how agriculture impacts their daily lives. Each lesson has been individually crafted and tested by certified teachers.” For more

The lessons are already developed and follow the NGSS guidelines. Therefore, this is the equivalent of teaching a lesson that would have been taught in class in the field for a unique experience.
The Farm Science Lab will be at Heritage from May 4th through May 11th, 2020. Heritage is the first school in Washtenaw County to obtain the lab.
