Agriscience

 

The CTE Agriscience Program (Zoology, first year) includes a study of domesticated and wild animals. Areas of study include breed and species origins, systems, nutrition, genetics, disease, use and current animal issues such as animal rights and welfare. Students will have animal labs (including dissection) and activities to help them understand the animals’ body and behaviors. This program will make students aware of career opportunities in the areas of animal science and production.

Agriscience (Botany, second year) will focus on plant parts, function, use, classification and specific forms of plant production. Practical applications in forestry, landscaping, greenhouse production, pesticides, conservation and crop rotation will illustrate the need and use for plants in our society and environment, Major natural resource topics of study include wildlife, forestry, soil, air, water, minerals, and energy sources.
The advanced level will make students aware of career opportunities in the areas of plant science and production, natural resources, and conservation. Agricultural business and marketing will be explored.
FFA participation is mandatory and this program has been designed for those students who want a true Agriscience experience.
