Recent research shows that 82 percent of youth find it hard to know if their food choices are environmentally sustainable. This statistic, among many other factors, motivates Midwest Dairy to offer authentic learning experiences in food and agriculture by working with and through partners in high school Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) education. At the recent South Dakota STEM Education Conference, Midwest Dairy and a learning consultant from Vivayic presented a breakout session on transfer tasks rooted in food and agriculture. The conference hosted over 300 teachers and administrators and provided important networking opportunities with leading organizations in curriculum development. There were also professional development opportunities for teachers to provide key insights into the next steps for this work in South Dakota throughout the year ahead.
