Supervised Agriculture Experience:
A supervised agricultural experience project is characterized as any agricultural endeavor in which the student learns skills in care, management and record keeping. Our chapter offers three different types of SAE's to the students:
1. Ownership and Entrepreneurship:
Students who own their own livestock, crops or small business are classified as having an entrepreneurship SAE. These students learn how to manage money, stock and equipment through hands on learning by doing.
2. Placement and Internship:
Students with paid or unpaid internship or work hours in an agricultural field learning skills that they couldn't learn through their own business. Examples of these would be vet techs, farm hands and vineyard managers. These help people prepare to join professional work environments but still maintain school and other activities.
3. Agriscience Research and Experimentation:
Students are able to complete a research project of their choice as an SAE project. This could include research on animal diseases, better ways of feeding, more efficient water usage, etc. These projects help students learn in a personalized way and gives them the ability to learn more about topics which they have a passion for.
