Animal and Plant Biotechnology
CASE resources and professional development provide extensive preparation for the teacher to be proficient and confident in their ability to provide proper instruction of biotechnology skills and concepts.
Due to the pace and rigor of the course, certain prerequisites are necessary for student success. The preferred method of student acceptance into Animal and Plant Biotechnology is through a CASE Sequence of Courses. Students should take Introduction to AFNR followed by either Principles of Agricultural Science - Animal or Principles of Agricultural Science - Plant prior to registering for this course.
An alternative route could be Biology, Chemistry, foundational agricultural science for plants and animals and a strong background in student-directed, project-, and inquiry-based learning.
