High-tech agri school coming soon
STI College in Tanauan, Batangas will soon be transformed into a state-of-the-art agricultural school, complete with greenhouses, laboratories, livestock and poultry farms, and a rainwater harvesting system for irrigation and other uses.
The venture will be a collaboration of STI and Jollibee owner Tony Tan Caktiong.
The Tanauan campus will also be equipped with industry-grade simulation laboratories, air-conditioned classrooms with flat screen TVs, student activity centers with internet connection, a covered basketball court, and multimedia centers, among others.
Under the agreement, STI and Caktiong will set up an academic institution with programs in agro-entrepreneurship, agricultural technology, logistics, and quick-service restaurants.
The two want to offer a farm-to-table school that will offer agricultural courses, as well as courses on managing quick-service restaurants. They said they want to attract more youth to agricultural education.
