iAgriculture = Agriculture Education and Career Exploration August 4-8, 2014 iAgriculture gives the community an opportunity to learn about Agriculture in the Salinas Valley, and the diverse career opportunities in ag!
Participants will visit local businesses to learn about what they do, what careers exist in their fields, and what academic preparation one needs to find employment in that field. Also available is the chance to find out which classes at Hartnell College are best preparation for jobs with companies such as these.
Field trips will give a look into a wide array of industries, including flower production, vegetable transplants, laboratories, packaging, processing and handling, trucking and transportation, fabrication, and marketing. There will also be many hands-on activities and group projects. The workshop will be held from 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday, during the week of August 4th.
This one-week event will be followed by a series of monthly half-day events during the Fall semester, so participants can continue to increase their knowledge of agriculture, meet more professionals in the field, and learn how to forge their own careers in your areas of interest.
