Posted by Green Fun Store on 10/6/2010 to Current News/Events of John Deere
High school students and their parents are encouraged to attend the event, which is being held by the Rock Island County Farm Bureau Foundation and University of Illinois Extension. Representatives from a number of colleges, universities and technical institutes will be on hand to answer questions.
Of specific interest for the fair are degrees associated with horticulture, agriculture and life sciences. Furthermore, groups will have a chance to tour John Deere's facilities in the area.
"Tour times vary and are offered at 8:00 a.m., 10:00 a.m., 12:30 p.m., and 1:00 p.m," the extension office said. "Groups can select their specific tour upon registration."
Along with hosting events like the college fair, the John Deere Pavilion acts as a place where a variety of crafting and educational pursuits can be taken up. For example, a kids' day is held every month and focuses on a different topic each time.
John Deere also offers tours of its facilities and other historical sites, including houses owned by its founding family.
