September 24–26, All dayWhat
ExploreAg introduces high school students to the various careers in science, engineering and technology in the food and fiber industry and engages them in actively pursuing career paths that can help them become a part of the sustainable future of agriculture.
ExploreAg is open to students from varied backgrounds, with diverse skills and interests, and provides them with an opportunity to explore and understand available career paths in the agriculture and food industries. ExploreAg programs are free.
The goal is that a student’s time at ExploreAg will lead them to discover a passion they may not have considered yet.
There are two weekend mini camps:
Sept. 10-12 – University of Findlay
Sept. 24-26 – Hocking College (Focus: entrepreneurship)
These one-of-a-kind STEM camps will engage students in the various careers in science, engineering and technology in the food, fuel, and fiber industry that will
be needed to face our world’s challenges. Through hands-on tours and activities in state-of-the-art laboratories, campers will get a unique look at what careers in STEM can entail. Days will be filled with learning from the top agricultural science companies and researchers at Ohio State University and University of Findlay.
Sponsored by the Ohio Farm Bureau Foundation, this program is free for all high school students.
