The APHIS AgDiscovery Program is coming back to Hawaii for its fifth year!
“AgDiscovery is a unique summer program for teenage students [ages 14-17] to gain a first-hand look at the many career paths open to them in the agriculture sciences such as plant and animal science, wildlife management, and agribusiness. USDA APHIS partners with various universities and colleges to deliver the AgDiscovery program at various locations throughout the country. The program allows students to live on a college campus and learn about agriculture from university professors, scientists, and agriculture professionals who work for the government or the private sector in a variety of fields. Students chosen to participate in AgDiscovery will gain experience through hands-on labs, workshops, field trips, and character- and team-building activities.”
