With agricultural experience programs (AEs), a student designs a program to gain hands-on experience and develop skills in agricultural career areas that interest them.

An AE program is the hands-on application of concepts and principles learned in the classroom. Students are supervised by agricultural education teachers in cooperation with parents, employers and other adults who assist them in the development and achievement of their educational and career goals. 

Four SAE Types

• Exploratory
Learn about the 'big picture' of agriculture and its many related careers.

• Research/Experimentation and Analysis
Conduct research or analyze information to discover new knowledge.

• Ownership/Entrepreneurship
Plan and operate an agriculture-related business.

• Placement
Work for someone else either for pay or for the experience.
