2015 - 2016 SAE Projects
Learning by Doing - A Supervised Agricultural Experience program (SAE) is a key component of agricultural education. While working on an SAE project, students learn to apply the concepts and principles taught in their agriculture classes to real-world problems and scenarios. A student selects an SAE project based on his or her interest in one of four areas:
•Exploratory - Learn about the big picture of agriculture and its many related careers.
•Research/Experimentation and Analysis - Conduct research and analyze information to discover new knowledge.
•Ownership/Entrepreneurship - Plan and operate an agriculture-related business.
•Placement - Work for a business or individual, either for pay or for the experience.
