Classroom Resources

Our free classroom curricula is designed to enhance student visits to the John Deere Pavilion, John Deere Tractor & Engine Museum, and John Deere Historic Site. We worked with educators to develop pre- and post-visit lessons about the history and future of agriculture and the global impact of John Deere.

The value of education

Innovation is critical to the success of John Deere. But for innovation to thrive, there must be dynamic educational opportunities that teach and inspire. We invest in projects that offer educational experiences for youth, particularly in our local communities.

One goal is to inspire at-risk youth to reach their full potential by improving secondary school graduation rates. We also hope to increase the number of students earning agriculture, engineering, and information technology degrees, and those who pursue careers in the ag industry.
