The University of Nebraska–Lincoln’s Haskell Agricultural Laboratory near Concord will host a science and agriculture family field day on July 24. All ages are welcome to attend the field day which runs from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Attendees can come and go throughout the event.
Optional activities will be organized into two tracks: agriculture; and science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics, or STEAM. Tours available in both the morning and afternoon will highlight research at Haskell, as well as the Northeast Arboretum and bee research. Panelists from Backyard Farmer, Nebraska’s must-see television program for gardening information, will be on hand to answer questions from attendees.
Activities and booths available all day include Nebraska Extension’s Mobile Beef Lab, science literacy trailer, maker space trailer, and robotics. Northeast Power will also be doing safety demonstrations. There will also be blender bike and healthy snack demonstrations, cover crop demonstrations and various child learning activities.
A free lunch, sponsored by the Nebraska Soybean Board, will be served.
