AgDiscovery Summer Outreach Program

Tuesday, January 24, 2017

AgDiscovery is a summer outreach program to help teenagers explore carers in plant and animal science, wildlife management, agribusiness, and much more!  Students will have the opportunity to live on a college campus, learn more about agriculture from professors, scientists, and administrative professionals who work for the U.S. Government in a variety of fields.  This 2-4 week summer outreach program for 2017 targets middle and high school students.  Twenty-two college campuses across the United States are offering this camp at no-cost (will have to make travel arrangements) to the student.  Two of the colleges are fairly close - Lincoln University in Jefferson City, MO and University of Arkansas in Pine Bluff, AR.  One parent reported her child attended one in North Carolina and loved the camp.  This is a great opportunity to learn about the many career paths open to them in the agricultural sciences.  For an information packet, please see Mrs. Gilliland.
