Farm Science Day

This annual AZ SciTech Festival Signature Event is an opportunity to learn about agriculture and the science behind agriculture in a free, fun, family-oriented environment.

Come and learn about good and bad bugs in our interactive insect zoo, learn about cotton production at Cotton 101, ride along in a self-driving tractor, learn how biotechnology is shaping the future of agriculture, see how science is finding ways to conserve and re-use water to grow crops, learn how remote-sensing is helping improve crops and helping growers make production decisions, and meet guayule (y-u-lee), a desert shrub that can make rubber.  Also enjoy hayrides to the MAC Farm Village, raptors from Wild at Heart, antique tractors, and tons of fun crafts for the kids.
