FFA members attending the National FFA Convention this year will be able to experience the Blue Room, a 17,000-square-foot interactive exhibit that will showcase agriculture and innovation.
National FFA CEO Mark Poeschl says the Blue Room will help modernize FFA programming to reflect today’s technology and research.
“You think about robotics, drone technologies, sustainability, how we treat water and soil, and now artificial intelligence,” he says. “All of those have an impact on agriculture, but we weren’t integrating those things into our FFA programming.”
