The Applied Plant Systems Experiential Learning Program (APS) funded by the USDA-NIFA, featured hands-on research, peer interaction and science literacy. The internship program launched in the summer of 2017 and took a triangular approach to developing agriculture and natural resource professionals who are equipped to meet the future challenges of food production and the environment. Led by Weaver Professor of Agronomy and Horticulture Martha Mamo with assistance from graduate coordinator Salvador Ramirez II, an agronomy doctoral student, the Applied Plant Systems Experiential Learning Program aimed to not only provide research experience but also improve undergraduate students’ systems thinking, decision making and ability to communicate with diverse audiences.
