Molly Minnig of Falls Church spent two weeks last month at the third annual United States Department of Agriculture-sponsored AgDiscovery program held at Iowa State University. She was one of 16 high school students selected from applicants from around the country.
The 16-year-old is a rising junior at the Maret School in Washington, D.C. AgDiscovery is an outreach program to help high school students learn about careers in plant and animal science and wildlife management. The program allows students to live on a college campus and learn about agriculture from university professors and scientists in a variety of fields. Students got hands on experience in anatomy, bacteriology, hematology, parasitology, immunology, embryology, animal necropsies, and other veterinary diagnostic procedures at the university’s facilities.
