The National Agriscience Teacher Ambassador Academy (NATAA) has over 10 years of successfully cultivating agriscience and inquiry-based learning in agricultural education. The Academy serves to train agriculture teachers on how to enhance the science that is already present in agriculture, as well as develop students as problems solvers and thinkers through the inquiry-based teaching method.
If selected as a National Agriscience Teacher Ambassador, you will be required to attend a national training session. The session is tentatively scheduled to be held in Ankeny, IA at the Iowa FFA Enrichment Center the week of July 18-22, 2016.
Goals for the National Agriscience Teacher Ambassador Academy include:
Following their training, the Academy's participants, National Agriscience Teacher Ambassadors, facilitate workshops at the National FFA Convention and NAAE Convention, helping other agriscience teachers learn how to teach more effectively. Ambassadors also conduct workshops at their local, state, and regional conferences.
