Amazing Agriculture Adventure seeking volunteers

The annual event teaches Grade 4 and 5 students about agriculture

The Amazing Agriculture Adventure (AAA) is looking for a few helping hands for its upcoming event in Brandon June 7 and 8.

Held annually at the Keystone Centre, AAA is organized by Agriculture in the Classroom Manitoba, and provides a hands-on, interactive event that complements the science curriculum for Grade 4 and 5 students.

Students move through 16-18 interactive stations covering a variety of agricultural topics, such as healthy habitats, soil erosion, weather, simple machines and maintaining a healthy body.

AITC needs volunteers to help out both at the event and with setup on June 6.

More than 550 students are anticipated this year, and volunteers can sign up for full or half days.

Class hosts will work with teachers and students and lead them to their stations, ensuring they’re in the right place at the right time. Volunteer station hosts will perform a short presentation on their topic, using a provided script. Both positions will receive training on the day of the event. Nearly 40 volunteer positions must be filled both days for the event to take place.

More information and a volunteer application form is available at the Agriculture in the Classroom website or by calling 204-471-9698.
