          Types of SAE
• Entrepreneurship
• Placement
• Research
  – Experimental
  – Non-Experimental
• Exploratory
• Improvement
• Supplemental
  Record Book: Required for
          all SAEs
• Accurate!!!
• Record
  – All money put into the project
  – All money coming out from the project
  – Working experience
  – Hours worked
  – Who you worked with/for
  – Photos of activities
• Anything Important !!!
       Entrepreneurship
• The student plans, implements, operates
  and assumes financial risks in a farming
  activity or agricultural business. In
  Entrepreneurship programs, the student
  owns the materials and other
  required inputs and keeps
  financial records to
  determine return to
  investments.
     Entrepreneurship
        examples:
• Growing an acre of corn
• Operating a Christmas tree farm
• Raising a litter of pigs
• Running a pay-to-fish operation
• Growing bedding plants in the school
  greenhouse
• Owning and operating a lawn care
  service
• A group of students growing a crop of
  poinsettias
             Placement
• Placement programs involve the
  placement of students on farms and
  ranches, in agricultural businesses, in
  school laboratories or in community
  facilities to provide a "learning by
  doing" environment. This is done
  outside of normal classroom
  hours and may be paid
  or non-paid.
                 Research
• An extensive activity where the student
  plans and conducts a major agricultural
  experiment using the scientific process.
  The purpose of the experiment is to
  provide students "hands-on" experience
  in:
  – 1. Verifying, learning or demonstrating
    scientific principles in agriculture.
  – 2. Discovering new knowledge.
  – 3. Using the scientific process.
     Research Examples
• Comparing the effect of various planting
  media on plant growth
• Determining the impact of different
  levels of protein on fish growth
• Comparing three rooting hormones on
  root development
• Determining if phases of the moon have
  an effect on plant growth
    Examples, continued
• Analyzing the effectiveness of
  different display methods on plant sales
  in a garden center
• Demonstrating the impact of different
  levels of soil acidity on plant growth
• Determining the strength of welds using
  different welding methods
      Non-Experimental
         Research
• Students choose an agricultural problem
  that is not amenable to experimentation
  and design a plan to investigate and
  analyze the problem. The students
  gather and evaluate data from a variety
  of
  sources and then produce
  some type of finished
  product.
       Non-Experimental
          Examples:
• A marketing plan for an agricultural
  commodity
• A series of newspaper articles about
  the environment
• A land use plan for a farm
• A landscape design for a community
  facility
• An advertising campaign for an
  agribusiness
            Exploratory
• Exploratory SAE activities are designed
  primarily to help students become
  literate in agriculture and/or become
  aware of possible careers in agriculture.
  Exploratory SAE activities are
  appropriate for beginning agricultural
  students but is not
  restricted to beginning students.
   Exploratory Examples:
• Observing and/or assisting a florist
• Growing plants in a milk jug
  "greenhouse"
• Assisting on a horse farm for a day
• Interviewing an agricultural loan officer
  in a bank
• Preparing a scrapbook on the work of a
  veterinarian
• Attending an agricultural career day
     Improvement (minor
        component)
• Improvement activities include a series
  of learning activities that improves the
  value or appearance of the place of
  employment, home, school or community;
  the efficiency of an enterprise or
  business, or the living conditions of the
  family. An improvement activity
  involves a series of steps
  and generally requires a number
  of days for completion.
    Improvement Examples:
•   Landscaping the home
•   Building a fence
•   Remodeling and painting a room
•   Overhauling a piece of equipment
•   Building or reorganizing a farm shop
•   Renovating and restocking a pond
•   Computerizing the records of an
    agricultural business
   Supplementary (Minor)
• A supplementary activity is one where the
  student performs one specific agricultural
  skill outside of normal class time. This skill is
  not related to the major SAE but is normally
  taught in an agricultural program, involves
  experiential learning and does contribute to
  the development
  of agricultural skills and knowledge on
  the part of the student. The activity
  is accomplished in less than a day
  and does not require a series of steps.
