Agriscience Technology

Agriscience Technology I  (MISO3 – 01021)
Grades 10-12; 1 credit; 36 weeks
Agrisicience Technology II (MISO3- 01022)
Grades 10-12; 1 credit; 36 weeks

Agriscience Technology courses integrate biological and technological concepts with principles of agriculture. Courses are designed in sequences to provide experiences in the subject matter. Units are selected to develop knowledge and skills pertaining to nutrition, reproduction, diseases, breeding, genetics, anatomy, and physiology in animals and plants. Genetic engineering, biotechnology, plant propagation techniques, agricultural production techniques, marketing technologies, aquaculture, animal health, and small animal care are examples of units that may be taught.

These courses integrate leadership and supervised agricultural experience programs. Career opportunities and educational preparation are examined. Learning activities are varied with classroom, laboratory and field experience.

This applied course is designed to enhance student’s perception of agriculture, its applications, and leadership development as the core foundation of the Agriculture Education program. Individual units will familiarize the student with: Plant science, food science, animal science, agricultural research, and scientific experimentation. Students will develop experiments, conduct research, and formalize lab reports. A full understanding of biology is very important. This course is available as a CTE credit or a science credit.
