AFRI Non-Formal Education Webinar on Food and Agriculture
Join NIFA staff for an informative webinar on the AFRI Non-Formal Education Program for Food and Agriculture. Major advances in agricultural productivity and rural prosperity in the past have resulted from transformative technologies such as breeding tools and strategies, mechanization, and careful use of agrochemicals. There are several emerging technologies that hold a similar promise. This program area priority will support content development and non-formal education activities to foster the development of tech-savvy young people. Projects must develop activities that cultivate interest and skills in STEM and in the food and agricultural sciences supported by the six priority areas of the AFRI Farm Bill. Data science including artificial intelligence, automation and robotics as well as gene editing and biotechnology will be supported under this program area priority.
