About This Event

On Saturday March 25th, join the National Museum of African American History and Culture for a STEM teacher workshop on agriculture. We invite 3rd-8th grade educators to register for a half-day workshop where we will learn about the agricultural contributions of African Americans and discover the inventions and strategies they used to produce food for themselves and their communities.

Participants will explore NMAAHC’s collections, discover the history of rice cultivation in the United States, engage in STEM activities for the classroom, and understand the ways African American farmers continue to reclaim their place in the agricultural world. Those who complete the workshop will be eligible to receive five (5) hours of teacher professional development credit.

This is an in-person workshop happening at NMAAHC and will run from 9am – 2:30pm ET.


Registration is required to attend.

  • Ecosystems: Interactions, Energy, and Dynamics
  • From Molecules to Organisms: Structures and Processes
  • Matter and Its Interactions
  • Earth’s Systems
