Project by Harrison County Student Featured in Kentucky Farm Bureau's "Science in Agriculture" Displays
Louisville, KY (November 30, 2017) – Harrison County student, Kate Gasser, was among the 12 students selected from across the state to display their agriculture science projects at this week’s Kentucky Farm Bureau (KFB) annual meeting in Louisville.
Kate displayed her science project as part of the KFB annual meeting tradeshow. Her project, “Liquid Life,” explored different plant growth patterns using tap water, rain water, and compost tea.
She was awarded $125.00 and a certificate of recognition for her participation at the state level.
The Science in Agriculture program was developed by KFB as a way to encourage teachers to incorporate agricultural themes into their classroom instruction. Projects are evaluated on categories such as creativity, skill, clarity and thoroughness, agricultural accuracy and scientific thought.
