Cultivate: Crop Science Fall Weekend

« back to programs list

High school-aged youth (sophomores, juniors and seniors) are invited to apply to a weekend, residential Crop Science experience on the campus of NC State University. Youth will have hands-on opportunities to explore a broad range of agronomic possibilities from breeding and enhancing crops, learning sustainable production practices and delving into practical tools that enhance our understanding of plant processes. We will visit a couple of farms, turf facilities and meet with industry professionals. Youth will also be introduced to careers, college-making decisions and leadership development and enjoy evening entertainment and team-building activities.
