High schools are looking for business and community partners that can provide "linked learning" opportunities to students as they prepare for college and careers. Lindcove REC recently engaged freshmen students from Woodlake High School Ag Academy in a full morning of hands-on, experiential learning that linked them to real-world ag science research and ag mechanics. Ag science students participated in an experiment to determine the best pesticide treatment for citricola scale. Ag mechanics students learned about irrigation, how the fruit grading system on the packline functions and they learned about shop tools. The outreach was well-received by both the teachers and the students who rated the visit as outstanding! We look forward to sharing Lindcove REC with more local high school Ag Academy programs in Tulare County.
