Wilmington, Delaware  

DuPont is a science and engineering company which, for more than 200 years, has developed innovations that tackle global challenges. In partnership with the National Association of Agricultural Educators (NAAE) and National FFA, DuPont has been a champion for bringing scientific inquiry-based learning to more students by elevating the rigor and accessibility of agricultural education.

DuPont’s flagship program for agricultural educator development is the National Agriscience Teacher Ambassador Academy (NATAA). This weeklong academy focuses on helping educators enrich the scientific learning inherent in agricultural education, and teaches content through inquiry. The academy is the longest-running national professional development program in agricultural education, and it has paved the way to a greater acceptance of science and STEM in agricultural education.

DuPont also supports educators in partnership with NAAE by expanding the reach of NATAA with national and state-level agricultural programs through DuPont Agriscience Institute workshops, the National Agriscience Preservice Teacher Program and Agriscience Inquiry Institutes. These programs support agriscience teachers at every stage of their careers, helping them implement inquiry-based methodology and scientific rigor. DuPont also actively works to encourage talented young people to enter the agricultural education profession through its sponsorship of NAAE’s National Teach Ag campaign. 

“DuPont understands that agricultural educators are the key to producing students who will be the next innovators and leaders in agriculture,” says Jay Jackman, NAAE executive director. “Their support is helping agriculture teachers all over the United States give students a high-level educational experience in science, math and literacy in the applied context of agriculture.”
