Mobile Science Activity Center comes to Bowling Green

BOWLING GREEN, Ky.- Students at Lost River Elementary school are learning about science and agriculture outside of the classroom.

The Kentucky Department of Agriculture’s Mobile Science Activity Center made a stop in Bowling Green to teach kids about the importance of agriculture.

Kindergarten through 3rd grade students used their hands to mold biodegradable plastic made with cornstarch and water. It’s just one of the ways Jason Hodge is teaching students about the relation between science and farming.

“If our next generation is not aware of agriculture and what it is, everybody enjoys to sit down and eat, and most people like to eat at least three times a day. Everything we eat comes from a farm,” said Hodge, program coordinator at the Kentucky Department of Agriculture.

The MSAC will be at Lost River Elementary until the 28. It will then travel to Rich Pond Elementary March 5-7.
