Did you know that soil comes from rocks that have weathered over time? This is one of the many simple, but important, facts that both kids and adults are learning at Agrium`s Seed Survivor Exhibit.
"This is a good way for kids to start learning the right things about agriculture so they get the right story,” said State Fair Marketing Director Jennifer Ashley.
For children here this week from out of state, the exhibit is a good way to get them thinking about agriculture in North Dakota.
"Even though we are an agricultural state, there are people out there who might not know what North Dakota can bring and what the world can bring to agriculture so this helps that out,” said Ashley.
Gabe Lakoduk is here visiting his Grandpa and learning quite a few things new things about North Dakota, “It’s a lot colder then in Kansas.”
In addition to North Dakota`s cold weather, on Monday, Gabe was able to learn several important things about the plants and crops that are grown in the state.
"You have to give them certain stuff to make them grow.”
The exhibit travels all over the country. Some of the features include multi-media and virtual reality games, an insect video scope, a watershed center, talking walls and much more. For Gabe, he was able to apply what he learned and play a game growing crops.
The Seed Survivor is open daily at the fair in the main lobby of the state fair center. And on hot days, it`s also a nice break from the high temperatures.
