Technology in Agriculture Leadership Academy
Discover the Future of Technological Innovation

Join us this summer to discover all the ways cutting-edge technology is shaping the agricultural landscape right here in Frederick County. 

Designed especially for teens ages 14 to 16, this unique program incorporates the use of advanced agricultural technology to deliver firsthand experience and experimental learning to build leadership skills and open the door to career opportunities.

Technology in Agriculture Leadership Academy (TALA) focuses on robotics, cybersecurity, drones, information technology, and more. Teens participate in hands-on activities, combining these technological innovations with the needs of our community, to visualize and experience the future of our agricultural industry.

Get ready to get your hands "dirty" while exploring the use of technology in the world of agriculture! See below to learn more. Be sure to register online today as space is limited and the program is expected to fill quickly.
