Our purpose at GrowNextGen is to grow the next generation of entrepreneurs and leaders for the changing industry that feeds the world.
GrowNextGen was launched in 2014 by a group of dedicated educators with funding from Ohio Soybean Farmers. We provide teachers with free, high quality STEM units and lessons that bring agriculture principles and practices into the classroom. With a primary focus on biology, chemistry, food science and environmental science standards, the site includes e-learning courses and a network of educators and industry leaders to answer questions and provide resources to support the lessons. We’re hoping to increase student interest in careers related to food production. Career videos and discussion guides describing career pathways allow teachers to give students a look into multiple careers they might not have considered.
