Ivy Tech Community College will unveil its Mobile Agriculture Classroom at a special event next week.

The Ivy Tech Mobile Agriculture Classroom, known as Ivy MAC, is a self-contained mobile classroom with interactive workstations for students, community members, and employer partners to conduct activities related to agriculture. Officials at the college say the 38-foot-long trailer is packed with ag-related labs, tools, and experiences to reach students and the community beyond the classroom and provide engaging, hands-on agriculture lessons. More than 40 donors contributed to the goal of $170,000 to establish the lab.

You are invited to check out the lab Thursday, Oct. 10th at 4:30 p.m. at the Ivy Tech Columbus Agriculture and Industrial Technology Center, located at 2565 Grissom Street.
