3 GTRA FFA members competed at District Soils CDE in Sioux City. They’ve been learning about soils in Plant Science class and were able to apply their knowledge. They were able to receive feedback from soil professionals that they can share with their class. They were tested on general knowledge, characteristics of soil horizons, and features of soil pits. Members competing were Madisen Fay, Taylor Krull, and Josi Reiman.
Only a few were able to escape successfully from the scientific method classroom. Many students continued to work on escaping throughout the day. Here are yesterdays science winners.
