AgDiscovery is a summer camp outreach program designed to introduce middle through high school students to career paths available in the agricultural sciences field, including plant and animal health and science, wildlife management, aquaculture, biotechnology, environmental science, forestry, entomology, food safety and food production, as well as managing the business aspects of agriculture. This 2 – 4 week program allows participants to reside on a college campus and discover agricultural science from university professors, practicing veterinarians, industry representatives, and government professionals. Students who participate in AgDiscovery experience hands-on labs, workshops, field trips and other group and teambuilding activities. South Carolina State University is hosting one of these camps from June 17 to July 1st. Click here to view a brochure. The deadline to apply online is March 12th.
