LINCOLN, NE — Agriculture is not just farming and ranching.

That was the focus of “Ag Day” at Lincoln Southeast High School on Monday Nov. 5.

The Career Academy (TCA) and Southeast Community College joined forces to host the second annual “Ag Day” in an effort to bring agriculture education and awareness to the middle of Lincoln.

Roughly 500 freshmen and sophomore biology students at Lincoln Southeast High School had the opportunity to engage in hands-on agriculture activities and explore agriculture careers. SCC agriculture students managed three stations: a horticulture station, a precision agriculture station and an animal science station. TCA students explained their program and involvement in the agriculture and biosciences pathway.
