Several spots open for youth in free precision ag program
Several spots remain open for youth to participate in a free precision ag program through the University of Illinois.
High School students 16 and older from any state and those entering their freshman year at the University of Illinois can attend the 2-week course to learn the basics of precision agriculture and explore the field as a potential career path.
The program will be held virtually on weekdays between July 26th and August 6th but materials will be distributed to participants for hands on learning.
The University of Illinois and CHS Foundation have partnered to offer the free program so students can learn the fundamentals of precision ag, coding, machine learning, robotics, and other technology before they get to college.
The application deadline has been extended to June 4th.
