EXPLOREAG SUMMER CAMPS CANCELLED FOR 2020
We are very disappointed to share that the ExploreAg camps this summer are cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We will offer virtual ExploreAg experiences this summer and begin in-person day-long experiences when Ohio State University Extension policy allows. Information about future events will be announced on this website and social media: Facebook (@exploreagcamp) and Instagram (@exploreagcamps).
The population is growing. Concerns over food security and the future of the agriculture industry are growing.
Our Solution: Create a sustainable future today.
Create the workforce the future agriculture industry needs today by encouraging young people to think critically about the food and farm industry and the issues associated with providing safe and sustainable food and fiber.
That is exactly what our one of a kind science camp does: ExploreAg introduces 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.
Our goal is that your student's time at ExploreAg will lead them to discover a passion they may not have considered yet.
The ExploreAg program is a week-long experience where high school students interact with and learn from internationally known teachers, scientists, and researchers. Students are hosted on campus at the Ohio State University and Central State University and are introduced to various aspects of agriculture both in the classroom and through diverse hands-on learning experiences, both on and off campus.
Subject areas include food science, precision agriculture, animal science, natural resources, management skills, technology, and agricultural business.
In addition to the classroom experience, scholars will participate in field experiences that highlight cutting-edge research, and introduce industry partners, to provide scholars with a glimpse of innovative careers in related fields.
