California Foundation for Agriculture in the Classroom

Seed Survivor Mobile Classroom


A Seed Survivor Mobile Classroom is coming to your area!

We are excited to announce Nutrien’s Seed Survivor is partnering with California Agriculture in the Classroom to bring a unique opportunity to schools within California.

Seed Survivor is a free, standards-based agricultural curriculum education program that teaches children how to grow healthy plants and where their food comes from. This interactive learning experience encourages children in GRADES 3-4 to master the elements that plants need to grow!



The Seed Survivor Mobile Classroom tours North America year-round with a stop in California from November 2023 to March 2024.

Seed Survivor Mobile is a truck and trailer unit that arrives at pre-registered schools and children progress through interactive stations. We can accommodate 4-6 classes over one full day as they rotate through class by class. Up to 30 students can participate in the display at one time and it takes one hour to complete. The 36-foot trailer is accessible for all and includes an entry and exit door.

Students spend half the presentation outside the trailer in a guided plant nutrient lesson and half the presentation inside the trailer playing each station.

They explore multi-media and virtual reality games, interactive activities, talking walls, and much more. All participants get to plant a sunflower seed to take home and grow! Last year, Nutrien planted approximately 100,000 sunflower seeds with students across North America.

After visiting Seed Survivor, students leave with an understanding that plants need water, light, healthy soil and nutrients to survive. They also learn about where their food comes from and the importance of agriculture to their daily lives. All participants get to plant a sunflower seed to take home and grow!
