STATESBORO, GA (WTOC) - A Statesboro teacher picked up a little green to teach students about growing green.
Ansley Mays, a STEM teacher at Sallie Zetterower Elementary earned a $500 grant from the Georgia Agribusiness Council. She asked for the money to buy kits to teach students how to grow hydroponic plants.
Leaders of the agribusiness council say they're eager to help teachers promote agriculture education.
"It's actually the application of math, and science, and biology, and it showcases how they can touch and feel it and make it part of their everyday life. It connects the dots," said GAC President Bryan Tolar.
Sallie Zetterower is one of three schools in the state to earn the grants.
