Parkland AgTech Showcase, March 9
Learning opportunities on ag equipment, ag lab visits, demonstrations, more
As part of Champaign-Urbana AgTech Week, Parkland College invites local community partners, ag industry professionals, K-12 educators, and high-school-aged students to join us for the Parkland College AgTech Showcase, Thursday, March 9 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
The Agricultural Technologies Department has designed this event to reach 200+ students to provide learning opportunities with high-tech equipment, visits of ag laboratories, interaction with the Ag Tech faculty, and demonstrations from current Parkland College Agriculture students.
Additionally, students will be able to engage with local agriculture-based employers to explore future career options, including companies such as United Prairie, Birkey's Farm Store, CIT Trucking, Curtis Orchard, and more.
Parkland Ag and Diesel programs offer two-year Associate in Applied Science programs, a transfer program, the Parkland Pathway to Illinois program, and numerous certificates that prepare students and working professionals with training, education, and credentials they can use right away. This showcase provides an excellent opportunity for students to find their career pathway.
Students can RSVP by March 6 through their school counselors, agriculture teachers or home-school cooperative lead teachers. Contact Caitlin Morris, Career Pathways Program Manager, at firstname.lastname@example.org with further questions.
