It doesn't get better than interactively learning about agriculture and water. In fact, local fourth graders in the Lubbock area tested their ag and water knowledge at the Ag in the Bag event, hosted at the Texas Tech Livestock Arena, this past week.
Over a span of three days, approximately 1,000 students passed through the five learning stations. The High Plains UWCD presented over water and soil. Students volunteered to help build a mini-aquifer, while the audience watched and observed water infiltrate through gravel and sand. Food coloring in the water made the demonstration easier to see for the large groups. While water and soil were discussed, students also learned about corn, peanut, cotton, sorghum, beef, and dairy production, as well as general food science. Each station created a hands-on approach to learning about agriculture in the Lubbock area.
