The University of the Virgin Islands’ St. Croix campus recently concluded its AgDiscovery summer program, which works to build interest in agriculture education and career opportunities for teenagers.

AgDiscovery communications specialist DaraMonifah Cooper said the two-week summer camp, which is co-sponsored by UVI and the U.S. Agriculture Department, allows students ages 12 to 17 to live on the St. Croix campus and participate in an “interactive curriculum” focused on animal science, veterinary medicine, aquaponics, horticulture, biotechnology and agribusiness.
