The Career Case: Explore Digital Agriculture Extension Activity has been developed in partnership with Agriculture in the Classroom Canada’s prairie provincial member organizations: Agriculture in the Classroom-Manitoba, Ag for Life in Alberta, and Agriculture in the Classroom Saskatchewan. This initiative is generously supported by Protein Industries Canada (PIC) and Enterprise Machine Intelligence and Learning Initiative (EMILI) Canada, and is part of a larger partnership with Actua, to showcase what a tangible career in the agri-food industry can look like.
