AgDiscovery is a joint program between several universities throughout the nation and the USDA.  It gives high school aged students the opportunity to participate in a free two-week summer program where they learn about careers in agriculture, agribusiness, and animal and plant science.  We are lucky to have a local Hawai’i AgDiscovery Program with the University of Hawai’i at Mānoa.  The two-week summer Hawai’i AgDiscovery is packed full of amazing hands-on experiences such as orchid pollination, DNA barcoding, honey extraction, cultural activities and more.  Ten students are selected to participate, and expenses for the Program, including housing and board at the University of Hawai’i at Mānoa, are covered.  Students need only pay for their transportation to UH and return home.
