The project is similar to programs offered by the Oklahoma Energy Resources Board. Funded by contributions from state energy producers, the OERB spends millions annually on curricula and programs that help students learn more about the energy industry while also becoming proficient in science, math, social studies and language arts.
With the global population expected to increase from 7 billion to 9.5 billion in coming years, producers will be challenged to provide 70 percent to 100 percent more food. In a world where food demand is only going to increase, it's crucial that citizens understand the need for agriculture industries and make sensible policy decisions that don't unduly impede access to food supply.
For advancing that cause, Oklahomans can thank the Noble Foundation.
