2013 Institutes Offered by Oregon State University
Introduction to Agriculture, Food, and Natural Resources (AFNR) is the introductory course in the CASE sequence of courses. It is designed to introduce students to the four pathways that will be offered through CASE. In addition to a brief overview of animal science, plant science, natural resources, and agricultural technology and systems, students will explore FFA, leadership, and science in agriculture. For more information about this course, please check the CASE4Learning website.

The Principles of Agricultural Science – Animal course is intended to serve as one of two foundational courses within the CASE™ sequence. The course is structured to enable all students to have a variety of experiences that will provide an overview of the field of agricultural science with a foundation in animal science so that students may continue through a sequence of courses through high school. Students will explore hands-on projects and activities to learn the characteristics of animal science and work on major projects and problems similar to those that animal science specialists, such as veterinarians, zoologists, livestock producers, or industry personnel face in their respective careers. The knowledge and skills students develop will be used in future courses within the CASE™ program.
In addition, students will understand specific connections between the Animal Science lessons and Supervised Agricultural Experience, FFA, and LifeKnowledge® components that are important for the development of an informed agricultural education student. Students will investigate, experiment, and learn about documenting a project, solving problems, and communicating their solutions to their peers and members of the professional community.
