Aims Community College to hold Ag Day Camp Nov. 2Submitted on: 10-17-2012
GREELEY – Aims Community College will host an Agriculture Day Camp from 10 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 2. at the Fort Lupton campus. The event will feature a variety of fun and hands-on activities. Participants will be able to visit different exhibits, including an agriculture GPS simulator, a water education trailer, and an animal station with goats and chickens.
Weld County excels at agricultural production, continuously ranking among the top ten counties nationwide. Agriculture literally is a growth industry, one whose economic impact employs 22 million Americans. Put another way, one in 12 jobs in America depend on food production. These jobs range from agronomy and animal care to processing and marketing.
For these reasons, Aims is offering two new associate degrees for transfer and non-transfer programs, one in Agriculture Business and the other in Agriculture Production. These degrees will prepare students for the work environment or for transferring to a four-year university to continue their education. Students may also choose the certificate options in either program and graduate after just two semesters.
Lunch will be provided and space is limited. To make a reservation for this event, call 303-857-4022, ext. 4300.
