Nearly every three hours, someone is struck by a train in the U.S. During this presentation, students will learn the skills they need to safely walk, bike, skate or ride near the railroad tracks.

Class G: Making Light
Presenters begin by explaining the parts of a copper atom and how electricity is conducted across one. Then the presenters explain the construction of a switch, fuse, and light bulb. After students understand, presenters break them into groups, distributing materials, and walk them through how to build a small circuit from a battery. This segment ends with the students turning on a light bulb and describing how it is able to produce light.
(This class is limited to a capacity of 24 students per session, per presenter request.) 19
Class H: Technology in Tractors
Farming is more than just tractors and animals: there is a vast amount of technology involved that helps farmers be more efficient with the resources they have. In this class we’ll describe how farmers use maps and GPS technology to farm smarter. 19
