Teachers, where can you take your students to see a dairy cow milked, witness a sow give birth, learn how food goes from farm to fork, see how wool is spun, observe a power-safety demonstration, and interact with STEM focused activities—all first-hand and in the same place? The Nebraska State Fair, of course! And we didn’t even mention the free entertainment available! The State Fair invites schools to participate in the special educational event that is Nebraska’s Largest Classroom. The program operates as a self-guided tour for K-6 students and their teachers.
In 2018, the Nebraska State Fair welcomed 118 schools (public/private/homeschools) and almost 4,000 students, teachers, and sponsors for the three-day event. Pre-registration is required for this free program.
