Career Experts Visit Hopkins Elementary

Hopkins Elementary’s youngest students got to meet some in experts in the field of dairy farming and horticultural science. Concepts like seeds and the process of germination...the importance of fresh water for plants…or where milk comes from and how does it get from the farm to the table are just a sample of what they saw and learned.
