AGRIUM Seed Survivor
Do you have the smarts to outwit, outgrow, and outlive the competition? Find out by taking the Seed Survivor challenge! Agrium’s Seed Survivor, a popular attraction at Aggie Days, is a six-part interactive educational display that helps children play, learn, and explore plant growth. By discovering the roles that light, water, soil, and nutrients play in the growth process, children can begin to understand how healthy plants result in healthy food for us all to enjoy.
Aggie Days is closed to the public, but open to schools in Calgary and the surrounding area for grades one through six on specific days. Due to the popularity of this prorgam and to our limited space, only pre-registered schools may attend. Teachers please register your classes now to avoid disappointment.
