SANS Summer Programs 


UMES hosts the AgDiscovery Summer Enrichment Program July 14-27.  High school students, ages 14-17, will learn about careers in animal management, plant biotechnology, nutrient management and natural resource sciences during this summer. Students are provided experiential learning opportunities through state-of-the-art research, education, farm facilities and field trips to conservation areas and research centers.  Students reside on the university campus for two weeks and work with university faculty and other agriculture professionals.  In addition to APHIS, funding is also provided by the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS).  Dr. Bessie Green, research associate, and Dr. George Shorter, assistant professor, both in the Department of Agriculture, Food and Resource Sciences, administer the program.  With questions, contact Green at or Shorter at
