Ohio Farm Bureau’s signature ag literacy and workforce development program, ExploreAg, offers free week- and day-long immersion programs for high school students. In ExploreAg, teens learn about agriculture and related STEM fields from industry experts, scientists, and educators. Participants visit producers like Smuckers, manufacturers like John Deere, and
research laboratories at OSU; develop their leadership and collaboration skills; and prepare for college and career.
