Mobile iGrow Educational displays have been making the rounds to Hall County elementary schools! These hands-on displays focus on two of the mainstays of Nebraska Agriculture – CORN and BEEF. Each interactive display includes a teaching guide, hands-on activities, and an iGrow activity worksheet, targeting elementary students.
