Stofer, Kathryn A.; Newberry, Milton G., III – Journal of Agricultural Education, 2017
"Agriscience" is an emerging field at the intersection of recently separate fields of "agriculture" and "science." For meaningful communication with and engagement of public audiences around agriscience, researchers, educators, and the public must have a consensus definition. We used personal meaning mapping to…

Despain, Deric; North, Teresa; Warnick, Brian K.; Baggaley, John – Journal of Agricultural Education, 2016
Agricultural education can take scientific topics to higher levels, emphasize scientific concepts, involve hands-on learning, and develop interrelationships with the other sciences, thus making the living and non-living world around them relevant for students, potentially supporting a STEM curriculum. As such, in 1996, Utah deemed agricultural…
