Two priorities of the Nebraska Corn Board's (NCB) mission are education and research.  We believe that the future of agriculture in Nebraska depends not only on continuing to advance research-based technologies and production practices but also on improving the public's recognition of the importance of agriculture.  This begins with students and fostering an interest and appreciation of food, feed, and fuel production that is vital to the overall health and sustainability of a growing world.  For these reasons, NCB recognizes the need and value of providing access to high-quality resources for Nebraska's teachers and would like to share some currently available resources that address topics such as water quality, biotechnology, energy and ethanol, soil, and sustainability.  NCB is also interested in gaining feedback on what gaps exist when it comes to availability ag/science resources/curriculum, and what role our board could play in helping fill those gaps.
This session will provide a hands-on lesson plan titled: Energy and ethanol. What is ethanol? How much corn is dedicated to ethanol production? Why should corn be used to produce ethanol? An experiment will also be conducted titled: Corn Fermentation in a Bag. Resources for other agricultural based lessons will also be provided.
