Title: Agriculture and Biosystems Science                                                      

Course Code: 569100CW

Unit: 1 Unit                                                    

Description: This course introduces essential concepts related to skills needed to pursue a career in a science or forestry field. Emphasis is placed on scientific research and development (R&D) and how it can be used to create future advancements in agriculture, aquaculture, and genetics. Students will learn the basic principles of lab science as well as the role of agri-science in our society and the importance of agriculture to the welfare of the world. Basic personal and community leadership and safety practices are included, and each student designs and participates in a supervised agricultural experience. Typical hands-on learning experiences include performing research in a science lab on the basic principles of plant, soil, and aquatic science; studying and modeling the significance of humankind’s interrelationship with the environment; and participating in leadership activities.
