Join us for the inaugural ‘We Grow Scientists’ event!
May 3, 2023 3:00-7:00 PM
The Ohio State University’s College of Food, Agricultural and Environmental Sciences (CFAES) will host the inaugural “We Grow Scientists” event on Wednesday, May 3, 2023, from 3:00-7:00 PM at Waterman Agricultural and Natural Resources Laboratory.
This afternoon of hands-on learning, wagon tours, and activities will showcase the many STEM fields CFAES has to offer and will include a look at the Waterman facilities such as the newly constructed Controlled Environment Agriculture Research Complex (CEARC). “We Grow Scientists” is a free event open to learners of all ages looking to learn more about STEM in their community as part of the COSI Science Festival (May 3-6, 2023).
This free event is for anyone in our community looking to learn how 'We Grow Scientists' here at The Ohio State University College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences.
We encourage you to bring the whole family out!
