Explore Project

Developing the innovators of the future

EMILI, Actua and Ag in the Classroom have partnered with Protein Industries Canada on the Explore Project to deliver programming to youth in K-12 that focuses on STEM, in-demand skills, and promotion of future career opportunities in the agri-food industry.

The project addressed the industry’s growing need for a skilled workforce. Together, we’re focused on strengthening the digital agriculture ecosystem in Canada by building skills, awareness of, and interest in plant protein, agri-food and digital agriculture.

Explore Project engages youth in digital agriculture

Since the Explore project launched in 2021, we have engaged close to 58,000 youth, including more than 11,000 Indigenous youth. This surpasses the targets we set when we launched this program with Actua and Agriculture in the Classroom. Follow #ExploreDigitalAg on social media to learn more.
