Ag Days / Events
Kansas Corn STEM supports organizations and individuals who educate youth and the public about agriculture and the corn industry. Our goal is to keep the conversation going about agriculture by finding activities that encourages learning long after the lesson has been taught. For ag days or events we provide support in several ways.
“Kids love our corn germination necklaces! When you have an event that only allows you to spend a few minutes with the kids, this is an activity that works in a short time frame but the kids will keep watching for days.”-Maizey, Kansas Corn STEM Bitmoji
When requesting materials for your event, you will receive everything you need for the activity. Make sure to watch the instruction video as there is prep needed six hours prior to using the materials provided.
Individuals seeking a 10-15 minute youth activity focused on corn can request supplies to make corn germination necklaces. Our goal is to provide activities that will keep the conversation going after the students leave the short presentation. This activity will allow the students to watch their corn seed germinate for 7-10 days. We provide all of the instructions, talking points and materials. On your request form indicate the total number of students who will be participating in your activity.

If your organization will be handing out teacher bags we have measuring spoons and a flier that we will provide to include in the bag. Let us know on the request form how many teachers will be at your event.
If your organization will not be conducting the corn germination necklace activity but will be handing out student bags we can provide Kansas Corn STEM pencils.
