Agricultural Science and Technology (ASTE)

Overview

Agricultural Science and Technology Education (ASTE) programs serve secondary students in full- and shared- time programs. Each program is located at a comprehensive high school with the exception of Bridgeport Regional Aquaculture Science and Technology Education Center, which has its own independent facility. The ASTE programs prepare students for college and careers in animal science, agribusiness, agricultural mechanics, aquaculture, biotechnology, food science, marine technology, natural resources, and plant science, (not all ASTE centers offer all the before mentioned programs). The ASTE programs incorporate a hands-on, active curriculum that integrates subject area skills and knowledge, applied skills in the core subjects of mathematics, science and English/Language Arts while incorporating leadership skills and work-based learning experiences through the National FFA Organization and supervised agriculture experiences.
