Did you know National Engineers Week takes place from February 18-24? Engineers work with dairy farmers to help make operational improvements that are good for the cows and the environment. This is a great time to make connections to potential careers in agriculture, including jobs in the STEM field such as engineering! These resources and videos can help you make some of these introductions with your students:
- View civil engineering resources. This Civil Engineering section of the Pennsylvania Ag & Food Careers website includes a video from a civil engineer and an infographic and one-pager describing the career, responsibilities and education needed.
- Watch this video about a new dairy barn building project. Zahncroft Dairy, a dairy farm in Pennsylvania, worked with White Horse Construction to build a new barn for their cows. This type of on-farm building project includes various types of engineers. Tour the barn in this video.
Age group? These engineering resources are ideal for middle and high school students.
