FRANKFORT (September 16, 2019) - The Kentucky Department of Agriculture’s high-tech Mobile Science Activity Center (MSAC) will visit Adair County Middle School September 17-19, 2019 to teach students about agriculture and its vital role in their everyday lives.
 
3 MSACs travel to schools throughout the Commonwealth to give students the opportunity to conduct scientific experiments related to agriculture using current educational standards and core content.
 
The MSACs use tablet computers, a 70-inch LED monitor, and an all-in-one touchscreen desktop computer to interact with students. The mobile units contain internal generators; heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems, and handicapped-accessible ramps.
 
The mobile units are administered by the Education and Outreach Division in the Kentucky Department of Agriculture’s Office of Marketing.
 
If you plan to cover a visit, please contact the school in advance.
