  • Campers will participate in individual and team activities, as well as competitions, to investigate the discipline of agricultural and biological engineering
  • Campers will use the knowledge gained from field trips, labs, and lectures to complete a team project focused on sustainability

Campers will also get to experience many stimulating adventures:

  • At the Food Science Pilot Processing Plant, learning how raw materials are processed into food and making pizza sauce
  • Bonding with other campers and Agricultural & Biological Engineering (ABE) faculty, staff, and students through exciting activities
  • Exploring the concepts behind hydroponics and aquaponics
  • Learning about hydraulics and apply what you have learned to your own hydraulic system
  • Performing hydrothermal liquefaction to convert food waste into a biocrude oil
