The Agricultural Power and Technology course utilizes inquiry-based activities, projects, and problems that focus upon the form and function of material, machines and tools used in agriculture. In this course, students apply technical skill while becoming competent in the process that is used to operate, repair, engineer and design agricultural tools and equipment.
