JULY 7–20, 2019
The AgDiscovery program at Purdue is a joint partnership between the university’s College of Agriculture (CoA) and Purdue’s College of Veterinary Medicine (PVM), as well as USDA’s Agricultural Research Service (ARS). The program brings together new and exciting learning opportunities for students. This 2-week experience will immerse participants in various disciplines of study through a series of hands-on labs, workshops, and field trips. These are designed to further develop real-life experiences and apply practical skills within animal, plant, veterinary, and environmental science; agribusiness and related disciplines; and the many aspects of Indiana agriculture and veterinary health care. Participants will complete and deliver research projects and presentations as one of the program requirements. They will also acquire information and tools to become competitive college applicants, specifically within the Purdue CoA and PVM admissions framework.
