Corn Update January 30, 2021

Hi, this is Sharon Thielen, Director of Education for Kansas Corn. And this is your Kansas Corn update, Kansas Corn STEM has done a great job of supporting teachers across the state the last four years, averaging around 1200 teachers using our resources. We’re very excited, and at this spring we’re gonna roll out a new program, called the Kansas Corn. We grow corn library series, focused on public libraries, and we created a "We Grow Corn" book about four years ago, and our focus now is getting that book not only in our schools, but now into our public libraries. We know public libraries are trying to get students and people from the community into their building. And so we have broken this book down into six different segments, providing snacks, different activities, videos, all educating people about how we grow corn in Kansas and how agriculture plays a big role in the economy of Kansas. So any of you that have a public library in your community, we really encourage you to visit wegrowcorn.com and get your library excited about incorporating education about corn in their library program.
