FIRA USA Invites High School FFA Clubs in Northern California to Attend for Free

The first day of the FIRA USA event ─ September 19, 2023 ─ will be free for High School students associated with FFA clubs in the Salinas area to attend.

Helping to deliver the future of agtech is much more than just technological advancements. The future of agtech requires sharp-minded up-and-coming engineers and scientists to take notice of the exciting developments happening in agriculture. Western Growers has been devoted to the effort of including students in the agtech roadmap. This is another example of the ways in which students have an opportunity to participate in the robot demonstrations and discussions.

The current schedule for the first day of the event includes an “AI – developing the datasets for automation” panel discussion from 9:00 am – 10:00 am, an “automation for precision climate smart agriculture” panel discussion from 11:30 am – 12:30 pm, and an “ag robotics career” panel discussion 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm. The day will conclude with a wrap-up session that will highlight specific activities related to agtech.

This event will be an exciting opportunity for high school students to learn everything from making and designing robots to selling and supporting them.

Whether you’re a high school student, educator, grower or startup, the FIRA USA event will be rich with agtech information and opportunities. Register for FIRA USA here.
