Space is limited to 24 people per session. Lunch will be provided, and thanks to a sponsorship from the Wisconsin Soybean Marketing Program, registration is free. Registrations are due by February 1.

A map and other details will be sent to registered participants.
This hands-on training workshop will enable teachers, Ag in the Classroom volunteers, 4-H agents, club leaders and others to become more familiar with the learning opportunities that the Soybean Science Kit offers. There are 74 sponsored kits in Wisconsin available for teachers, extension agents, volunteers and home school parents to use in educating youths about science and agriculture.
