Fourth Graders of Burke Town School Interview Farmer Ryan Simpson of Sutton for a valuable lesson about Farming.
See the Video!
Fourth grade students at Burke Town School created a video and entered the "Dig into Science" Competition sponsored by S.W. Cole Engineering, Inc. The competition was designed to help students learn more about Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (S.T.E.M.). Although the students did not receive the award, they received a valuable lesson about farming. Thank you teacher Tracie Surridge for bringing Vermont Ag in the Classroom!
