As part of the 5-year, $10 million dollar USDA Dairy CAP grant, the Jahn Group and colleagues lead an ongoing project to revive an agricultural focus at Milwaukee’s Harold S. Vincent High School. The school now offers students multiple curriculum pathways in agricultural sciences, all encouraging hands-on learning and independent projects.
