FRANKFORT (February 3, 2020) — The Kentucky Department of Agriculture’s high-tech Mobile Science Activity Center (MSAC) will visit Union County Middle School on Thursday, Feb. 6 to teach students about agriculture and its vital role in their everyday lives.  

Three MSACs travel to schools throughout the Commonwealth to give students the opportunity to conduct scientific experiments related to agriculture using current educational standards and core content.  

The MSACs use tablet computers, a 70-inch LED monitor, and an all-in-one touchscreen desktop computer to interact with students. The mobile units contain internal generators; heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems, and handicapped-accessible ramps.  

The mobile units are administered by the Education and Outreach Division in the Kentucky Department of Agriculture’s Office of Agricultural Marketing.
