Come to the St. Paul campus for an enjoyable half-day of learning & discovery.

This year’s program features keynote speaker Mike Sadowsky, a professor with the Department of Soil, Water and Climate, and Director of the Biotechnology Institute, who will be speaking about the Minnesota Mississippi Metagenome Project (M3P).

Other “classes” include topics such as beer, dairy robots, bio-mimicry, amazing plants, Emerald Ash Borer and economics as well as exciting programming for kids K-6.

Classes Without Quizzes

This annual half-day learning event was created in 2000 to reconnect alumni and help the general public better understand how the work of CFANS faculty affects the daily lives of Minnesotans.

Standard Program (adults and students older than grade 6):

All participants will attend a keynote session, and then select two (out of eight) breakout sessions of his/ her choice.

Kids’ Edition (grades K – 6):

These student participants will attend their own special sessions concurrently to the standard program.  Instead of attending the keynote and the breakout sessions, their program will involve a variety of educational activities led by University of Minnesota educators.   The Kids Edition sessions are divided into activities for two age ranges: grades K – 2, and grades 3 – 6.

Hosted by the Alumni Society of the College of Food, Agricultural and Natural Resource Sciences.
