I had the opportunity this week to speak to over one hundred Grade 4 students about what an agronomist does. Fortunately not all at once! It was always in groups of 20 or so students. Most of my speaking to children is through the Alberta Science Network's [Scientists & Engineers-in-the-Classroom]. One time a year I also speak to Grade 4's through the [Classroom Agriculture Program].
The presentations are fairly similar. After spending some time getting the to talk about what an agronomist does I let them loose digging up plants!
