Carroll County High School’s STEM Lab for Agriculture

Categories: Carroll County, Workforce Readiness and Career & Technical Education | 2016


Carroll County High School's STEM Lab for agriculture may be the first of it's kind in the nation. The combination of a dedicated STEM lab equipped with the latest research tools and equipment and a dedicated 65 acre farm both operated by the school’s agriculture department allows students to learn scientific protocols that will assist local producers to meet higher food safety levels by providing lab services that will enhance their necessary documentation. The combination of agriculture classroom instruction, utilization of the STEM Lab for Agriculture, agriculture production on the school farm, and a partnership with both Virginia Tech and the Southwest Virginia Farmers’ Market, is a unique combination that has equipped the Carroll County Public School System to be a national leader in the arena.
