Agricultural Science is a class offered to all ninth grade students and counts as a science credit.In Ag Science you learn about agriculture, FFA or Future Farmers of America, animals, plants, food, public speaking and leadership. According to Kosner Lewis, a ninth grade student at SJHS, you learn about how science is used in agriculture.

On September 19th, the Ag Science class went on a field trip to the Utah State Fair. “At the State Fair we visited many animals including pigs and sheep. I also hung out with my friends and ate some really good food,” said Kosner Lewis. According to Beau Mattinson, a ninth grade student at SJHS, they went and learned about agriculture stuff.  According to Mrs.Thomas, the Ag science teacher at SJHS, they go to the fair to allow students the opportunity to see a variety of agricultural products grown right here in utah. For example sheep, pigs, vegetables, grain crops and agricultural mechanic projects. While there the students can walk around and view the agricultural displays, shop at vendors, eat lunch and this year they got drenched by rain.“Even though it was cold, it was still a ton of fun,” said Kosner Lewis.
