Our stem-based Programs

Poultry and egg production is an important part of agriculture and food production in the United States, especially in the Midwest. There is a critical need to increase student awareness and understanding of the many opportunities in the poultry industry. To date, there are limited resources available for K-12 teachers to adopt agricultural related topics in their classrooms. Our STEM-based programs provide opportunities for teachers to integrate agricultural awareness and understanding into their class materials.

With major funding provided by the U.S. Poultry & Egg Association, Indiana State Department of Agriculture, Turkey Marketing Development Council, and the United States Department of Agriculture, this standards-based, independent-learning online curriculum has been tested and reviewed in classrooms across the Midwest.

On this site you will find teacher resources and poultry lesson plans developed by national award-winning educators from Purdue University. The curriculum explores the production of poultry and eggs and the science behind it, while also introducing students to animal welfare measures and technologies used to efficiently raise poultry.
