SIOUX CITY -- The Regina Roth Applied Agricultural and Food Studies Program at Morningside College recently gave two presentations on best practices in agricultural education at the North American Colleges and Teachers of Agriculture annual conference in West Lafayette, Indiana.

Rich Crow, an assistant professor of applied agricultural and food studies, and Tom Paulsen, an associate professor and chair of the applied agricultural and food studies program, presented on how Morningside integrates undergraduate research with drones into its agriculture program.

Paulsen also gave a presentation developed with Chris Benson, director of the applied agricultural and food studies program, on the externship experience at Morningside, where applied agricultural and food studies majors participate in paid, semester-long externships. They work side-by-side with management and production teams gaining hands-on experience in the real world.
