Do you have high school-aged youth who love agriculture? Maybe they raise backyard chickens or sneak a plant or two into the shopping cart at the nursery? Please invite your young people to participate in two virtual, summer programs with NC State Extension that focus on poultry and plants: The Poultry Science Summer Institute and the Horticultural Science Summer Institute. While these are both on the same week, youth can even do both at the same time! Please note that we have full scholarships for youth with financial need.

Horticultural Science Summer Institute 
June 21–24, 2021
Do you love plants? Are you in high school? Join NC State University’s Department of Horticultural Science for an exploration of horticulture through a virtual program that includes hands-on live workshops, do-it-yourself activities, videos, and more. We will dig into topics like plant propagation, plant identification, garden design, growing fruits and vegetables, and much more.
This year’s program is virtual but will include a box full of the supplies you need to really engage in learning about horticulture.
Each day there will be a live Zoom session (that will also be recorded) focused on a favorite horticultural topic. Youth will also have the opportunity to delve into asynchronous material to further fuel their passion for plants. Youth will be able to access the material all summer long.
Full scholarships available for youth with financial need. Email or call Liz Driscoll: liz_driscoll@ncsu.edu | 919-886-3424
