Expanding Youth Involvement in Exploring Exciting Employment Directions in Agriculture (YIE3LD)

Postponed to Summer of 2021

To address the challenge of food production for the world’s increasing population, we need to train our youth in state-of-art technology to satisfy the needs of the agricultural industry. The Expanding Youth Involvement in Exploring Exciting EmpLoyment Directions in Agriculture (Expanding YIE3LD in Ag) professional development (PD) workshop allows teachers to explore the agricultural industry through academic research labs and two tours to food and agricultural industries. In this workshop, teachers will also learn how to prepare their students for an Automated Hydroponic System Challenge that will take place at Penn State Harrisburg in Spring 2022.
