Animal Science in Action, a two-day event for rising high school juniors and seniors, has been set for June 1-2 on the University of Georgia campus in Athens, Ga.
Presented by the UGA College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences, the event introduces students to the fields of animal and dairy science. Participants engage in a series of laboratory experiments and visit each of the college's main teaching farms for hands-on activities with animals.
Current CAES animal and dairy science students will help lead the program which begins Tuesday morning and concludes Wednesday afternoon. Participants will stay overnight in a UGA dormitory.
The cost of the event is $75 and the registration deadline is May 14. To register for Animal Science in Action, visit the Web site www.ads.uga.edu/academics/ and follow the ASA link.
