The American Farm Bureau Foundation for Agriculture has launched a mobile app for four of its My American Farm games. Available mobile games and corresponding STEM components that meet national standards are: Keys to Stewardship (science); The Great Seed Search (technology); Thrive (engineering); and Operation Peanut Butter (math). Download the free My American Farm STEM app from the App Store or Google Play.
“We continue to see increased demand for STEM education resources,” said Christy Lilja, executive director of the Foundation. “The My American Farm app was developed to help meet the needs of educators who are interested in purposeful STEM education.”
Games available in the app are ideal for students in grades three to five. Once the app is downloaded to a device, games can be played offline anytime. The app is the first stage of phasing out the current My American Farm game kiosk technology. The Foundation will slowly phase out game kiosks beginning in 2020.
The My American Farm educational resource is a special project of the American Farm Bureau Foundation for Agriculture. The site and resources are made possible through the generous support of title sponsor Corteva Agriscience, Agricultural Division of Dow DuPont. To take advantage of the free My American Farm resources, games and activities, visit http://myamericanfarm.org. Links to all of My American Farm’s classroom resources are available at www.myamericanfarm.org/classroom.
The American Farm Bureau Foundation for Agriculture was founded in 1967 and works to educate the non-farming public about the importance of agriculture and reconnect them through educational outreach and learning resources with the people who grow their food.
