Teachers and other educators can learn about water quality and how science can help manage soil nutrients like nitrates through a new graduate course offered by the Iowa Agriculture Literacy Foundation.

The online course will offer two graduate credits from Drake University, Morningside College or Viterbo University through AEA PD Online. The course, The Science of Protecting Water Quality, will begin Feb. 5 and run through April 9. It will train teachers to apply STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) concepts in their classrooms. The course is targeted toward middle and high school science teachers and agriculture teachers, but is open to all teachers. The course is also being offered for teacher license renewal credit.

Educators can find the registration information in the AEA PD Online professional development catalog.
