Ag-Discovery Camp / The Science House

Ag-Discovery at NC State University is an outreach program to help students learn about careers in plant science. Students live on campus in dorms, learning field and laboratory research techniques from university professors and practicing entomologists, botanists, and plant pathologists working for the U.S. Government. Plant sciences include entomology (the study of insects), plant pathology (the study of plant diseases), botany (the study of plants), and agronomy (the science of soil management and production of field crops). This two-week summer residential program targets students 15 – 17 years of age as of the first day of camp. Students chosen to participate in Ag-Discovery will explore a research topic through hands-on laboratory experiences, workshops, and field trips. Students will also participate in character and team-building activities and diversity workshops.
