Six weeks of research and workshops ended for 19 students from across Georgia. The students were participants in Fort Valley State University’s Young Scholars Program.
The program is a collaboration between FVSU’s College of Agriculture, Family Sciences and Technology, the University of Georgia’s College of Agriculture and Environmental Sciences and the Southwest Georgia Project for Community Education. The summer program concentrated on science, technology, engineering, agriculture and mathematics (STEAM) disciplines.
Dr. Mohammed Ibrahim, associate professor and program coordinator for the agricultural economics program at FVSU, said the purpose of the program is to help enhance student’s readiness in STEAM disciplines and prepare them for college life.
On July 8, approximately 60 people consisting of parents, students and FVSU faculty and staff attended the closing ceremony held in FVSU’s Student Amenities Building. For more information about the Young Scholars Program, contact Ibrahim at 478-825-6815 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
