Virtual Field Trip with Corteva Agriscience
Teachers, be sure to take our short teacher training before signing up for the event.
Only teachers, counselors, or adult staff members at a school can sign up for IGNITE events. If you are a student, please let the IGNITE Teacher at your school know that you are interested in this event. If you don’t have IGNITE at your school, please email email@example.com to get started!
Students will be introduced to the company and participate in a critical thinking activity helping students relate to what doing STEM at this company is like. They will also hear from women in STEM tell their stories, share their challenges, and how they overcame them. Students will then participate in a live question and answer session!
Corteva Agriscience believes in using STEM to impact people around the world through their food. We are dedicated to improving agricultural technology while also protecting our environment.
Students will learn how chemistry impacts how food is grown. They’ll also get an inside look into how crops are grown and how the decisions of STEM professionals affect us all. Students will be exposed to the complexity of agriculture and get a broader view of all the steps in the process.
