Students will be presented with a detailed look into each area, including an overview of the processes involved in production and the people responsible for bringing the products to market. The aim is that students will be able to directly link agriculture to their Fort Bend County community.
Over 50 elementary schools representing five Independent School Districts and one Municipal School District in Fort Bend County were invited to participate. Each student will receive a goody bag provided by HEB, and each teacher will receive a complimentary curriculum, aligned to Texas Education standards and TEKS.
Expected attendance for the 3-day Expo is 1,500 students. The AgriLife Expo will be held Tuesday - Thursday, May 6-8, 2008, from 9am to 2pm. The event will take place at the Fort Bend County Fairgrounds. About 1,500 students are expected to attend the three-day expo. For more information call 281-342-3034.
