Hosted on approximately a dozen college campuses, AgDiscovery allows participants to preview college life while learning about careers in animal science, veterinary medicine, agribusiness and plant pathology from university professors, practicing veterinarians and government professionals. Students gain experience through hands-on labs, workshops, field trips, and other group and team-building activities. While one program enrolls boys and girls ages 12-16, all other programs accept applicants ages 14-17.
