Summer Agriculture Institute 2012:
Summer Agriculture Institute (SAI) is a 3-credit, week long, graduate level course for K12 educators with little or no agricultural background, offered through Oregon State University. The goal of SAI is to help educators use Agriculture as a context (or theme) for teaching the Academic Standards (science, math, social studies, English, etc.). Additionally, educators will receive hands on instruction and collateral materials to incorporate agriculture into their classroom curriculum. SAI provides a working environment for participants to experience current, factual, scientific information about agriculture.
